Charley says: beware of electricity sub-stations

Posted on May 7, 2013 | Post a comment | Bookmark and Share

Inspired by Scarfolk, the English town that still lives in the 1970s, we're continuing with this 'ere blog's latest feature: Charley says.

The 1970s was a terrible time, of course, where the risks to people from everything from electricity cables to water to other people could not be overstated. It was horrifying. Particularly the rabies.

To save the public from these threats - and themselves - the British government authorised a series of public information films designed to scare the living daylights out of anyone who watched them. And each week, I intend to scare the living daylights out of you with a public information film or two - watch them, as they might just save your life.

This week: electricity sub-stations. Don't even think of playing frisbee near one, Jimmy.
