Diogelwch ar y Fferm (Safety on the Farm)
A farm can be rife with danger so farmers must take safety seriously. This public information film has under a minute to ram the message home.
From the collection of:
Farm safety: a matter of concern given that numbers of children are injured each year for lack of it. The great outdoors, adventure and a willing canine companion can make a child oblivious to danger. As this public information film makes clear, it is the farmer’s responsibility to reduce the risk of accident as far as possible.
The Ministry of Information, producing films/leaflets that warned the British public of dangers and provided advice and propaganda during WWII, was disbanded with the arrival of peace but replaced by the Central Office of Information, so that the government could continue to disseminate advice and guidance on any number of issues e.g. the new national health service, education, rights. The National Screen and Sound Archive of Wales holds a number of such films – 1970s ‘fillers’ for use in the cinema or on television - that were provided with Welsh language sound tracks.
