Green Cross Code Man

The National Archives has now put sixty years of public information films online.

For the first time on The National Archives’ website you can view complete public information films from 1945 -2006. Joining with the Central Office of Information (COI) to celebrate their 60th Anniversary, we have featured a selection some of the most memorable and influential COI public information films that cover some fasinating events from Britain’s post-war history.


There are some real classics from Charley to Protect and Survive.

These films have a lot of potential to support teaching and learning from history, sociology through the media studies.
