COI Collection Vol 6: Worth the Risk? DVD

| DVD

Health, safety and welfare messages are at the heart of the sixth volume in the COI Collection. Crossing the road; sensible drinking; playing with matches; the welfare state; combating terrorism; decrimalisation; crime prevention; surviving nuclear attack...and much, much more, are all tackled here with the usual mix of horror, humour, shock tactics and gentle persuasion. Highlights include: Skateboard Safety (1978), the pioneering animation Charley's March of Time (1948), Say No to Strangers (1981) starring Timothy Spall, and the unnerving Cold War era film Hole in... the Ground (1962) in which warning and defence measures against nuclear attack are depicted.
