Children and Disused Refrigerators

Public information film about the dangers of old fridges which lays its 'safety first' message on with a spade

Public Information Filler 1971 1 mins

Overview

This short animated public information film warns of the dangers of old fridges to children in typically hyperbolic fashion, cautioning viewers to remove the doors from these 'death traps' - or better still, have them properly disposed of by the local council. The fear of children suffocating in disused fridges is largely forgotten in the age of magnetic seals, but earlier designs with locking doors could be genuinely dangerous - hence the emphatic tone of this film.
