This first volume in the COI Collection explores the subjects of policing, crime, delinquency, and the justice system. A variety of styles and genres including story documentary, public information shorts and cinemagazines were employed to deliver crime prevention messages and bolster recruitment. Highlights include: Children on Trial (1946), an approved school drama set in a progressive and enlightened system; Youth Club (1954), which proposed a solution to keeping Britain s young people out of trouble; Help Yourself (1950), a nononsense crime prevention film; Man on the Beat (1956) and The British Policeman (1959), in which the local bobby comes armed with a friendly smile. Together, these films provide a wonderful record of British life in a seemingly more innocent age.
