  • Description

    DIPTHERIA IMMUNISATION - Short trailer film

    Cartoon Animation.

    A bright star star shines in the sky. Cut to baby sleeping in a crib. The baby wakes and crawls across the bedroom. As he crawls he grows slightly and eventually stands and chases a butterfly. In a graveyard, an evil looking skeleton wearing a black cape crushes the butterfly. The crawls towards the skeleton but a white flash crosses the screen and the skeleton fades away.

    The voice-over warns us that Diptheria claims many babies lives each year, and the only way parents can protect their children from the fatal attack is by immunisation.

    End Title: Immunisation. Every child should be immunised before he is one year old.

    NB: item was originally part of Gazette issue 47/85.
