    Yeah they were REALLY eerie. I also hated the one with the boy and girl walking together (on a date maybe) and a group of kids was playing with fireworks and throws one at the couple which blinds the girl. |There was also one which showed a little girl in A&E and her Mum was narrating the ad saying "Yes she dropped the sparkler and picked it up at the hot end"

    This would have been late seventies to early eighties and there were lots more in a similar vein, gives me goosebumps just thinking about them

    Yes those ads were scary! Does anyone remember the one with the little blonde girl playing in the garden then falling and drowning in the fish pond?

    Stickswiper.

    Cant remember if they were adverts or just TV announcemnts things but I remember the four minute warning stuff in the early 80's. It scared the life out of me and I planned to hide in the shed...fat lot of good that would do. I wanted my mum to stock up on tins and batteries so we would be OK.....we could have lived on beans and had a torch that worked.. lol

    Yeah, the Cold War was a tense time - hopefully our kids will only know how things were through films & history books.

    We had a farm safety ad where a child's legs are sticking out of a rainwater barrell. Graphic but effective.
