This is the definitive collection of Public Information Films shown to British audiences in cinemas during the Second World War. They encouraged greater effort from those fighting on the Home Front.

Many household names of the era like Tommy Trinder, Cyril Fletcher, Charlie Chester, Old Mother Riley, Jimmy Hanley, Stanley Holloway, Arthur Haynes, a young George Cole and Alastair Sim feature in these trailers, many for the very first time!

Over four hours long, this collection includes ‘Is Your Journey Necessary’, ‘Dig for Victory’, ‘Make-Do and Mend’, ‘Careless Talk Costs Life’, ‘Food Flashes’, ‘Coughs and Sneezes Spread Diseases’, ‘You Can’t Be Too Careful’, and ‘Look Out in the Blackout!’ along with many more!

An exclusive bonus feature gives an insight into the concerns of the post-war world of reconstruction, including an emphasis on productivity for the export drive, the much-feared spectre of diphtheria, recruitment into the forces, the continuing importance of National Savings and the huge danger of unexploded bombs left over from the war.
