Safety all the Way

Hair-raising scenes of weaving cyclists, dopey drivers and pedestrian near-misses caught on camera during a typical day in 1950s Oxford.

Instructional film/TV programme 1953 16 mins


Oxford's dopey drivers and careless pedestrians are out in force in this nail-biting road safety film made courtesy of a sticking plaster manufacturer. Watch out for some unusual product placement; the astonishing sight of Cowley factory workers cycling home en masse after work; and the military precision of a convoy of gleaming Morris motors wending their way to the docks.
