I recall, being called in, by my dad in the 1970s to watch a programme (a one off, i think) with the express intention of scaring 'us kids' into not playing with things we shouldn't!!
However, i believe it was longer than an average 'public info film', and may not have been made with this in mind..
And so, the premise was, i believe, kids playing with matches, playing in powersub-stations etc etc.
Anyway, the real 'shock factor' was adults carrying the dead bodies of kids, and laying them down along the railway tracks!!! (once seen, never forgotten)
Suffice to say, it had the 'desired effect', (although my counselling sessions continue..
