Public Information

Sadly they are closing their doors. Shame really as a lot of these films knocked a lot of common sense into children and adults

Regginald Molehusband was by far the best PIF character.

If you know the whereabouts of a copy of any of these, get in touch with the BBC.

The COI might be closing, but there is still a whole lot of information being produced in all shapes and manners, especially on Health and Safety.

Thinking about all the archived stuff that perhaps the 'normal public' haven't been able to see, reminds me of Bob Monkhouse and the collections he obtained over years. Some of that collection was part of lost material, that had been dumped many years before, and as now become of further interest by collector's or other interested parties.

When Pathe News closed, that was also stated as a very sad day!.

I was only a child when Reginald did his thing,but many years later I still find myself referring to this PIF character whenever I see crappily parked cars.

Guilty as charged!

I am the original Reginald Molehusband.

If it's not at least fifty yards long (by the kerb) or ten car widths wide (in a car park) I don't even bother trying!

There was the one about the impending nuclear holocaust from the Eastern Block. Paint your windows white and hide in the cupboard under the stairs. Yeah right!!!

al's left peg

That information seemed to be around in 1939/1945, but that wasn't nuclear ;0)
