Educational videos/films you were shown in school.

Not sure if there was already a thread about this before or not but here goes. Does anyone have memories of educational films on drink/drugs/safety etc that were shown to pupils in school. I remember our class was made watch this circa 1990. Everyone was bursting out laughing at the various scenes of careless kids being fried.

No such a thing as video or "films" when i went to school. Sister assumpta Cornelius told us everything we needed to know about sex, drugs and rock n roll.

A 1980s film about the dangers of trespassing on pylons and electricity sub-stations.

The teenage actor grabs some cables and gets fried. I think most people in the class were laughing. Poor form

Another one I remember from circa early 90's was about job interviews (was close to Leaving Cert time). The only bit I clearly remember was a guy in punk regalia walking into an interview and the narrator saying something like "you're not going to impress them with a ring in your nose".

This wasn't something I saw in school, rather it was at a summer job I did during the 90's in the Hasbro factory in Waterford. It was a health and safety video hosted by Pat Kenny which was obviously from the 80's because he was wearing those huge glasses that were (for some bizarre reason) fashionable then. It was him basically showing you how to lift things properly or wear proper ear defenders around heavy machinery that sort of thing. I had a look on youtube but couldn't find it unfortunately.

We were shown this in secondary school. It felt horribly dated even then though I don't think it was that old when we saw it.

I vaguely remember one we were shown in primary school in the early 80's. I'm pretty sure it was a newsreel film on a projector and not a video. It was a short film about a boy in the Phillipines who becomes an altar boy, it was acted, not a documentary. If I remember right it was shown to us by a priest who had something to do with Africa and Far East magazine and was calling to the school.
