John Trevelyan was Secretary of the Board of the British Board of Film Censors from 1958 to 1971. He had been involved in educational administration. In 1951, he joined the British Board of Film Censors as an examiner, and in 1958 became Secretary. He passed the 1969 Ken Russell film Women in Love with minor cuts, and received a complaint about the nude wrestling scene between the two male stars that the actors were "displaying their genials". He wrote a book on his experiences entitled What the Censor Saw.
