NewGirlHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 25-Feb-11 12:04:22

We've been asked by The British Board of Film Classification (BBFC) to find out - as a parent - what you know and how you feel about the classification of DVDs/videos (i.e. 12, 15, 18 etc).

Please take a few minutes to complete this short survey. It is open to all UK Mumsnetters with at least one child, and everyone who takes part and adds their details at the end will be entered into a prize draw to win £150 of cinema vouchers for your local cinema.

Thanks and good luck with the prize draw!

Right NewGirlHelen.

I did the survey, but blasted MN went offline for 30 seconds when I clicked "Done".

So now I'm unhappily oblivious as to whether I'm a FullyFledgedContender.

Please could you stand on one leg, with your cardi on backwards shouting "french fancies" while you check whether I am officially in the running please?


AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 25-Feb-11 13:32:03

Chaos you are IN - thanks grin
How do you know Helen is partial to a cardie?

Now, Ann, you know I have special powers.


AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 25-Feb-11 13:40:53

AND you can!

NewGirlHelenMumsnet (MNHQ) Fri 25-Feb-11 14:19:35

Spooky Chaos - was just thinking as I pulled on my ancient cardie this morning that I should invest in a new, snazzier number - you've busted my secret cardie obsession!


So, NGHelen, you're a JustifierOfUnnecessaryPurchases.

I like you already.

£150 cinema voucher, eh?
That would at least pay for a large popcorn and a drink.

LilRedWG Fri 25-Feb-11 19:07:45

But cakey - I neeeeeeed them more than you.

Pingpong Fri 25-Feb-11 20:51:32

Can't quite believe that MNHQ have labelled you 'new girl' Helen ! Seems a bit cruel.
Anway I've completed the survey.

MrsKwazii Fri 25-Feb-11 22:00:51

Does this mean that MNHQ can't employ anyone else called Helen? Or that any new Helen be NewerThanNewGirlHelenMumsnet? What a quandry confused

MrsKwazii Fri 25-Feb-11 22:01:38

any new Helen will be blush

Done but I was a bit tipsy so i may have answered the strongly agree etc backwards as i was having trouble concentrating on the very complicated question explaination...


Will they come back and tell us the results? I'd be really interested to know.

blimey. With £150 we might even be able to go twice

boobellina Sat 26-Feb-11 23:30:52

done - and looking forward to being able to afford to go to the cinema more than once a financial year!


Bicnod Sun 27-Feb-11 10:20:11


MNHQ - do you think that some of the feedback you could give is that "cinemas are too expensive for families" wink judging by the quips on here (mine and a good few others) we would like to go much more often but quite simply can't afford to.

SecretNutellaFix Sun 27-Feb-11 15:58:13

I'm not eligible to take partsad

AnnMumsnet (MNHQ) Sun 27-Feb-11 19:06:53

MrsShrek....will pass on but not sure it is under remit of BBFC. Is an issue I'll also flag with MN campaign team as is a family friendly issue I think.

eden263 Sun 27-Feb-11 22:31:37

QOD Mon 28-Feb-11 18:54:12

You could always be BIGHelen? My DH is know as BigQODsDH as he has a nephew called LittleQODSDH'sname

WHen my SIL had a girl, the entire family wanted her to have my name as it's a nice one.

I was HORRIFIED!! I would have henceforth been known as BIGQOD. Being very fat that's just not on........

Anyway, what's my point?

your point? err, are you saying that Helen's Big? or she's your DH confused

QOD Mon 28-Feb-11 19:06:08

OMG! She's my DH?

or were you saying your DH is fat? If you're saying Helen's fat, then we'd probably better run now before she catches uswink

QOD Mon 28-Feb-11 19:55:12

Yes! Yes HE'S fat - not BigHelen no no .... not her.

Babieseverywhere Mon 28-Feb-11 20:35:44

Done. I love the is my favourite (rare) treat.

I did the survey yesterday but forgot to come back to say I'd done it blush I'm a novice at this thread so wasn't sure if I had to tell you here to be in with a chance <excited> smile

elphabadefiesgravity Tue 01-Mar-11 21:43:43

Done, oddly enough it is very relevant as only last week I bought a DVD like they are talking about. As it happens I knew the content well but was very surprised at its exemption

PurplePillow Wed 02-Mar-11 10:50:04

toomuchmonthatendofthemoney Wed 02-Mar-11 21:40:40
