Thanks to a tip on the fascinating blog Bread and Roses, I'm enjoying exploring the BFI clips on YouTube. Here is one from 1941 showing the nation (a) how to cook a cabbage, (b) the proper place for girls, (c) the way boys should be shown the proper place for girls. Watch out too for the difference in attitude towards Health and Safety between then and now. I would love to give those boys a good slap and I could have done that without fear of being accused of child abuse in those days.
It is rather a long clip but worth watching.
