This short and shocking public information film warns of the dangers of turning right when cycling in busy traffic. The film is redolent of a distant, more carefree era with its energetic, floppy-haired boys, breezily touring the streets on their colourful BMX bikes. Made for TV, it's typical of the kind of safety film that aimed to scare kids across Britain out of their more reckless habits.
The young cyclists in this film pedal their way around South Wimbledon; they head along Haydons Road, past the South Park Road bus stop, before making a dangerous turn into Milton Road.
Many thanks to London Topographical Society members Graham Hewett, Ian Pleace, Mike Steer, Vince Gardiner and Alan Stewart for their help identifying the locations.
