Green Cross Code - Splink Launch
A former Doctor Who returns to Earth to deliver a road safety message
Public Information Filler 1 mins
Former Doctor Who Jon Pertwee (later reincarnated as lovable scarecrow Worzel Gummidge) has a message for Earth's children in this road safety film. Unlike the more familiar 'Stop, Look, Listen' Green Cross Code, the clunky acronym SPLINK proved tricky for kids to retain, and ultimately the campaign was quietly shelved. Look carefully and you'll see that one of the kids is a young Todd Carty - himself a couple of years away from fame as Tucker Jenkins in Grange Hill.
