Adverts and Public Information Films

Ear worms and warnings to spur you into action

With catchy jingles and sinister warnings, adverts and public information films firmly lodge themselves in the memory.This collection showcases early offerings from the surreal Food for Thought to the nostaglic Kennedy's Bread. The public information films from the 1970s strike a different chord, Policeday offers a dramatised version of a 'normal' day of in the RUC to tempt new recruits, saying just as much about policing at the time with what it leaves out as what the film includes. 

If you enjoy these films explore more from the Public Information Films collection on the BFI Player to delve into the BFI National Archive, and partner archives around the UK.
