Seeing how we've been reminiscing a lot lately, here's one for the over 30s.... Public Informatiom Films that the BBC used to put out in the 70s. 'Charlie says...' is the obvious one but who else remembers.... One pointing out the dangers of swimming in lakes, shows a kid drowning and the Grim Reaper appears That really used to spook me! It worked with me. I'm sure they used this 'shock technique' a lot and I recall similar ones about playing near railways and talking to strangers. Can't remember what this one was warning of but it had a man (Reg Varney, I think) who kept having accidents as he was walking down the street. Anyway, at the end it shows him coming out of the hospital all in plaster and on crutches and he turns to the camera as if to give the narrator a funny look. I guess it was warning of pedestrians and 'everyday accidents' that could occur in the street? "I wish, I wish I didn't keep losing my bird" "Then learn to swim young man, learn to swim" There were quite a few about road safety... "Think once, think twice, think BIKE" "Beware of the weaver bird" Reginald someone or another and parallel parking. (or was that an ad?) "Remember, I won't be there when you cross the road" Green Cross Man. They tended to use those really naf animations a lot (if you can call it that!) That couple on the beach, Pertuna and Arthur(?) about calling the Lifegurad if you see somebody in distress in the sea. I think they were in another one, set in the country with an irate farmer about litter (?) My memory's fading! Need some help here from 'senior' members of the forum!
