Public Information Film



I was 11 years old when this Public Information Film was made in 1973. The government back then didn't care how much they scared children shitless...

I don't know where I was but I missed out on these public information films.

The only one I remember is the Grim Reaper ad campaign in 1987 for the Australian anti-AIDS campaign.....that was scary!

I was glad I wasn't a gay man!

I've got a DVD of these and some are damned scary.

Nothing is worse, though, than the infamous "Protect and Survive" films.

JJ - I didn't think you were even born in 1964!

Peggy - I'm glad you're not a gay man either...!

Rick - I also remember those films. Wasn't it Patrick Allen who did the voice over?

I came through Joanna's blog...found your name hilarious.

Of course, I actually misread it and thought it said Auld Reekie Pants! LOL

Enjoying your blog...
