Some of the most traumatizing television in Britain came from Public Information Films. Throughout the 1960s, the films were usually gentle reminders to look both ways when crossing the road or take care when playing near water and encouraging children to learn to swim should they ever fall in. By the early 1970s, however, these films began to get more horrific in their themes and thus managed to remain in the minds of British children. Dominic talks Erica through some of the ones he watched in school and that remain with him to this day.
Have you ever seen a British Public Information Film?
