Wasn't that a hard-hitting fire safety ad from Northern Irish TV?

Yep-I remember it now.The original ad was actually a one-part ad with those three warnings being delivered at the end;before then being split into a three-part commercial.During the original ad,a man is waiting frantically at the water tap for a bucket to fill while the blaze is rapidly spreading through the house...the voice-over says something like "....do not waste time filling a bucket of water,it may be your last act".And then the ad finishes with the screen going black and the the words of the closing lines appear as the voice-over says them loudly and with meaning:
GET OUT
GET THE FIRE BRIGADE OUT
and
STAY OUT

Playing hide and seek on the farm and the young lad falls into the slurry pit, scares the hell out of me still.

Does anyone remember the one where there was a family or something in a car, and they were in the car when it was being crushed like they do for scrap yards?

Why oh why didn't Irish TV make a similar compilation :-(

The end credits where they list the children (name / age / method of death for some) who died in farm accidents during 1976.

The COI Collection Volume 6: Worth The Risk is chock-full of great PIFs too.

[quote="nlgbbbblth;85374177"]The end credits where they list the children (name / age / method of death for some) who died in farm accidents during 1976.


It doesn't get more morbid than that.

Twould make you wonder why PSAs like these are rarely on our screens anymore,and the ones we do see nowadays take a more "laid back" approach.Unfortunately,terrible tragedies are still occurring on farms-in the same way as people are still drowning,fires are still occurring,dogs are still left roaming free,too many people are still being infected with HIV/AIDS.....to cut it short,these type of ads need to be brought back with hard hitting messages in order to make people take real notice.

Good to see that there are still a lot of road safety ads at least-they really can't afford to be relaxed about that.

Does anybody remember these ones:

"Firehound says...'Never give fire a chance,grr-ruff'"

"Where dya think yer goin?Have ya no sense?Ye'll get killed if ya carry on cyclin like that!"

"(sound of laughter and glasses clinking)Your party could quickly become.......(sound of a crash,followed by church bells) A funeral.DON'T DRINK AND DRIVE."

"Speeding.Only YOU can stop the serial killer within you."
