Film Images Bulletin Autumn 2004
New in for the COI collection, these four items on civil defence are from the 1960s, when the Cold War was at its height and are pertinent in today’s climate. The actor Robert Urquhart presents ‘Civil Defence Warning Films’ - aimed at the general public - on what to do in the event of a nuclear strike including preparation and survival in fall out conditions. ‘Hole in the Ground‘ shows how the UK Warning and Monitoring Organisation would distribute warnings in the event of a nuclear blast. ‘The Warden – His Duties and Training’ - shows what wardens should do under a nuclear strike. Finally ‘Care of the Homeless’ shows us the work and organisation of a refugee centre in Bath, when a nuclear bomb falls on nearby Bristol. The terror and the real possibility of nuclear war comes across clearly in these fascinating documents, with great scenes of the English stiff upper lip in all its glory and much tea being poured!

Spotlight on... Greenpark Collection
Feeling tired already this winter? In Greenpark’s diverse collection of 1950s and 1960s films, one of our favourites is this nostalgic charmer on the indispensable health and energy qualities of milk! Centred on a family who transform from apathetic tired homebodies to glowing handsome people ‘on top of a pretty good world’ after being told by their doctor to become milk drinkers. We love the fabulous cult scenes of suburban housewives, family life and the pastel interiors of the Fifties domestic environment, all in glorious Technicolor. Search on Film-14K
