British Public Information Films, 1945-2006

Play Safe – Frisbee (Duration: 1 min., Release Date: 1979, Sponsor: Central Office of Information for Department of Transport). "...Part of the 'Play Safe' campaign, 'Frisbee' was one of a number of films that used chilling electronic music and frightening sound effects to highlight the potentially fatal combinations of electricity pylons and kites, fishing rods and radio-controlled planes." From British Public Information Films, 1945-2006 at the National Archives. "...a selection of some of the most memorable and influential Central Office of Information (COI) public information films that cover some fasinating events from Britain’s post-war history."
