3-D and censorship (sorry, classification)

Just wanted to recommend a blog written by my fellow UEA colleague Daithí Mac Síthigh about the BBFC's problems with classifying 2-D and 3-D versions of the same film (you can find the original blog here:

It reminded me of a similar problem in the 1950s, when the Breen Office in America (and the BBFC in Britain) held meetings about the new technology, because what was apparently acceptable in 2-D might be 'highly revealing when seen in depth.' Their main issue appeared to be the representation of female figures and monstrous creatures in the 3-D films... and some of the same arguments appear to be coming round again now...
