Continuing the BFI's exploration of Britain on Film, this fascinating collection brings together a selection of public information films, propaganda shorts and adverts from the Second World War, drawn from the BFI National Archive, all of which give essential advice to a nation living in an age of austerity. Amongst the handy hints and tips, we learn how to support the war effort from home by rationing, staying healthy, growing vegetables, cooking and salvaging. Also includes an illustrated booklet with essays, film notes and full film credits.
