Synthesis


This is quite a common conundrum in primary school English.

We need to combine Let under-16s watch film and Let under-16s learn from film. Note that the joining point, i.e. where the later comma should go, is just before the word film and not before from.

Therefore, the headline should be Let under-16s watch, and learn from, film — or simply Let under-16s watch and learn from film.
