A 1950s Kodachrome London is the setting for this entertaining lesson in cycling safety. On these strangely empty streets, cycling safety seems as easy as... well, riding a bike. But the National Cycling Proficiency Scheme, introduced by the Royal Society for the Prevention of Accidents in 1947, and public safety films such as this 'Rights and Wrongs' series still have much wisdom to offer.
