Description

A road safety film aimed at schoolchildren.

A dramatised story of schoolchildren walking to a hospital to visit a friend who has been injured in a road accident. En route to the hospital the teenagers exchange stories of accidents and near accidents that they have been involved in. These scenes are shown in flashback and used to illustrate principles of road safety for cyclists by demonstrating good and bad practice. Their route takes them along Leyton High Road and ends at Whipps Cross Hospital in Leytonstone. The flashbacks meanwhile take place on the suburban back streets around Leyton.

The human factor
This film is about how accidents in the workplace might occur. In the form of a semi-dramatic reconstruction, narrated by Maurice Denham, we see how a factory worker, Stan Berry, becomes the victim of a serious accident while at work. We arrive at the scene of the accident, an industrial work place with stacks of oil drums at the same time as the ambulance. The following sequences explore how the accident happened and who is to blame. The conclusion is that it is the human factor the unpredicatability of human behaviour which is the issue. 3 segments
