"The report, published on Thursday, said the BBFC judged that it was 'very unlikely' that The Railway Children would promote 'such dangerous activity'. 'The Railway Children is set in the Edwardian period and trains and access to railway property are very different today,' the censor said."
This sort of complainant often looks out for gollywogs, so that he can write a piece for the Guardian about how offended he is on behalf of the minorities.
Still, I suppose we must be grateful that the complaint wasn't about 14-year-old Jenny Agutter's friendship with middle aged railway porter Perks, played by Bernard Cribbins. His line "I'd do anything for you, miss" could so easily have been taken to mean "How about eloping to France, then?" by the sort of obsessive who sees potential child abusers everywhere. Except beside her, of course, on the Labour benches.
