The Dam Busters Blu-ray The Dam Busters is a 1955 UK war historical drama by Michael Anderson.
Starring Richard Todd, Michael Redgrave and Ursula Jeans. BBFC link IMDb UK: Passed PG uncut for:

Censorship History

The US Version was shortened by about 15 minutes and was censored to overdub the dig named ‘Nigger’ with the new name ‘Trigger’.The UK Version has continued with the original name but a modern British remake opted for the dog to be renamed ‘Digger’.

The BBFC commented about te name ‘Nigger’ for 2017 cinema and home video release:

One of the main characters owns a dog called ‘Nigger’. The dog’s name is spoken a number of times, without any apparent racist intent, and reflects cultural attitudes of the time that would be unacceptable today. It also reflects the actual name of the real-life mascot of 617 Squadron during World War II.

A BRAND NEW RESTORATION COMMEMORATING THE 75TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE ORIGINAL WWII RAID

A much-loved British classic, Michael Anderson’s 1955 drama captures the tension and bravery of an audacious raid on the centre of Nazi Germany’s industrial complex and the quintessentially English combination of inventiveness and dogged determination.

Split into two distinct sections, the film deals first with the fraught, but the ultimately successful development of a new bomb, by Dr. Barnes N. Wallis(Michael Redgrave). The second deals with the mission itself during the British raid on the Ruhr Dams, and its associated costs for the enemy and for the British airmen.

Adapted by R.C. Sherriff from Paul Brickhill’s book “Enemy Coast Ahead” and featuring superlative special effects photography by Gilbert Taylor (to say nothing of Eric Coates’ stirring theme tune), The Dam Busters was Britain’s biggest box office success of 1955.

UK Censorship History

BBFC advised category cuts were required for a 12A rated cinema release in 2018. The film was passed 12 uncut for home video. Uncut and MPAA PG-13 rated in the US.’

Somewhat unusually the home video release appears uncut at the same age rating as the cut cinema version. The cuts for the cinema version were not made for specific violent scenes, just for overall scariness. Perhaps the BBFC felt that the film is not so scary on the small screen and so the cinema cuts were not required.
