    Hi, I like to read your contributions constantly and I'm amazed at your overwhelming knowledge in this field. I have a slither of a memory from the very early 70's about, I think, a governmental warning advert. It use to always frighten me when it came on and at the time i was sure that it was aimed at avoiding being murdered. This of course is ridiculous but that is how it felt to a 3-4 year old. The bit that sticks out in my mind was the end when a woman is sitting at her bedroom table fixing her make up looking into a round mirror when she glimpses somebody behind her. Am I just imagining this? Or was there a safety advert with this image within it? Cheers, Steve

    I vaguely remember the woman in the mirror but wasn`t it a car mirror? Perhaps a safety ad for clunk click every trip? Or perhaps if it was a bedroom mirror it was an ad about locking your doors at night? Beware there`s a thief about and all that?

    You could be right, it's all a bit misty for me, now you mention it I think it might have been geared towards car safety cheers xx

    It's possibly not what you remember, but take a look at one of the most frightening scenes ever shown in Doctor Who:

    The opening image of this clip was similar in the sense that the woman was looking into a mirror fixing her make up however it wasn't in black and white an in it was one villainous chap who looked a bit like a sweeney version of Peter Bowles. I'm sure it was a Public Information advert, Ive been through tons on youtube to great delight but alas nothing!!!!!!

    Maybe it was a public information advert highlighting the dangers of marrying stereotypical 'bounders'?

    I used to be terrified of the 'heart attack awareness' P I adverts in which the wife emotionally blackmails her husband into eating a massive fry up which leads to a heart attack! "come on love,i've made it specially"!
