Children editorial principles (part 1)

CBBC's policy on Certificate 15 films is still unclear (see also blogs on 23 February 2009 & 2010)

Last Monday, Newsround at 3.55pm began with a report on the Oscars, during which Ore mentioned that the Best Film award had gone to The Hurt Locker which, he said, was a war drama about soldiers defusing bombs in Iraq. So it looks like present policy permits talk of Cert 15 films on the programme. However they cannot be mentioned on message boards (Rule 11) nor, it seems, on Newsround's feedback pages.
