To mark the 60th anniversary of the Central Office of Information (the UK Government's propaganda machine) the BBC's online Magazine held a Public Information Film Festival STOP LOOK LISTEN to find the Brit's favourite public information film. 25,000 people voted. And the winner is...an animated series of six short films, made during the 1970's, using cardboard cut-out figures: Charley Says. COOI has become a lot less sophisticated since those days. It no longer produces cute characters to seduce us, but makes horror flicks we're bound to ignore.
