CIVIL DEFENCE TRAILER NO 3 - HOW'S YOUR MEMORY? [Main Title]
Civil Defence recruitment trailer.
The film begins by asking questions about events, with illustrative footage: the burning of Crystal Palace, the coronation of George V and Len Hutton scoring a triple century against the Australians. Also shown are shots of a Nazi rally intercut with shots of children at a Punch and Judy show. This technique is to demonstrate that everyone had eyes to see but only saw what they wanted to. The question is raised: what would happen if war comes again? By joining in with Civil Defence the spectator may be able to save lives and prevent suffering.
