An animated road safety film.
A stop-motion animation story of a difficult old woman who takes risks crossing the road. A rhyming ode describes the action as she suffers a number of near misses with passing traffic as she goes out shopping. The animated film is bookended with live action footage of boxer Henry Cooper sat behind a desk in a wood panelled room explaining the importance of taking care when crossing the road. On the desk beside him is a small monitor showing a busy street (possibly Theobald's Road).
