After I found that 1901 video, I got trapped into a bit of YouTube surfing, which this time was quite fruitful: I came up with this. It’s a 1950 information video by the Colonial Film Unit aimed to encourage people to come to work in Britain. This really made me laugh due to its hilarious and almost adorably unintentional lack of political correctness.

‘Wherever there are little children, people are kindlier. Africans in particular have a great love for them and somehow, small children have a quick instinct and seem to know when they are with friends.’

“A cripple needs much kindness.”
