Public Safety Films

Who had the misfortune to witness the Public Safety Films aimed at school kids back in the late 70's/early 80's?

The two that are burned in my memory are the ones about the dangers of playing on a farm, where all the kids die in accidents (drinking poison/crushed by iron gate/drowning in slurry pits) & the other about playing on railway lines (squashed by trains/fried by 3rd rails etc etc)?!!

I notice that these can now be downloaded but such is the trauma that these caused i can't bring myself to watch them again ;-)

Anyone know what i am wittering on about????

    Until they appeared on screen together I thought they were one and the same

    There was another cartoon with some chav family leaving gates open in the country and leaving litter everywhere. The woman had some ridiculous name like Petunia

  • I've just remembered the film about safety by the river, with the grim reeper type chap and his cloke - scared the beejesus out of me that did.

  • I 'love it' when you go to the cinema now, for a fun night out of escapism, only to have several of these information films rammed down your throat - cancer, road accidents, STD's etc. I am paying for this!
  • Prepare and Survive is a classic
  • I remember Charlie and his cat saying don't talk to strangers....probably made in the early 70s and rerun all the way through the 80s when I was a nipper
