OMG the sexual tension of the first 3.20, when you're just waiting for someone - anyone, really - to get his nob out.

I heard a really interesting radio programme a year or so ago about British and US public information films. The reason so many US PIFs were so lurid or OTT wasn't, as is usually assumed, because 1950s American society was hysterical but because they were not usually created by the government but instead created by independent filmmakers who made money by selling them to schools to broadcast and thought only the most shocking or purile films would get noticed. UK PIFs were made by the government and thus rather more down-to-earth.

This is probably an example of that. It's not all that lurid and the voiceover is surprisingly calm but it's basically using the common "don't go with strangers" line and then applying it exclusively to older men picking up teenage boys.

8'33" suggests they're going to be hit-on by Roy Orbison.
