Early atomic weapons testing. Actual footage of nuclear bomb testing, the scientists and military people involved in a the South Pacific and the American Southwest.

How to prepare a tea party for you and your friends - Let's Give a Tea 16 Koda print; has break in middle.
Explains the reasoning behind attractive and correct tea-table arranging. Obsessive compulsive personality disorder comes to the small screen! See an old biddy teach a young biddy how to meticulously set up a tea table adhering to an endless array of petty rules. The result is a symmetrical arrangements lacking any sense of esthetics. As you watch this, notice that Mother Time consistently makes minor corrections to her student by moving the tableware a faction of an inch this way or that way.
The American tradition of the buffet supper is shown in its simple preparation. A "must" for the homemaker or hostess. That any intelligent person would care enough about this subject and think it is so important as to make a film about it is astonding. Martha Stewart must have grown up on this.
1941 Dramatized history of the Coca-Cola company and some of the people who participated in its origin and growth. Made in the style of a feature film. Regardless of either you do, or don't like this film, You have to take it for what it is. And simply put, I think it is a really cool old film that depicts life in a simpler time, when it was still OK to leave little Susie out on a bench in front of the store.
This 1965 film teaches the individual how to take care of his medical and health needs in time of disaster when medical assistance might not be readily available.

A 1971 partially-animated, humorous short that illustrates how drinking alcohol can impair one's judgement when driving. Animation by Pat Oliphant This short film shows a range rover driving around the beautiful Colorado countryside, and in another side story, shows the history of people driving (or in the caveman’s story, carrying) and drinking, all with the predictable results.
1965 Public service announcements by the U.S. Civil Defense office inform farmers what to do in case of nuclear attack using marionettes. Well, when these PSAs were designed, obviously the creepiness factor was considered to get people to pay attention.
While this 1966 films producers should be applauded for their sensible approach in teaching parents how to talk to kids about sex, the awkward reading of cue cards and embarrassing situations will produce nervous giggles among even the most jaded audiences. This film was produced by some of the pioneers of sex education whose ideas are still being challenged by school boards today.
(1955) So you've spent all this money on the latest appliances, but you still aren't happy. Perhaps it is because your water is "old fashioned". This film sells the housewife on buying a water softener for the home even if they already have soft water.
A humorous spot dispelling the myth that alcohol's effects can be reduced by eating food. This PSA from the late 1960's-early 1970's was actually part of a longer film entitled "Drink, Drive, Rationalize." It was made in the mid 1960's by AAA to try to warn their members against drinking and driving. Strangely enough, it's one of the more saner scenarios of the film. Weird is a good way to describe this one. I think this is one of those cases where the writers thought "Just get the message across, don't care about how." Bad acting from the actors doesn't help either.
Amazing 1960 work of melodrama for PTAs and school boards, this film tells the story of a school fire, the panic that developed and the loss of life that occurred. Discusses the obligation of teachers, school administrators and parents to provide fireproof buildings and all other safety devices necessary to prevent fires.
Presents the origin of the banjo, the development of southern folk music and its influence upon Americans. Pete Seeger plays his banjo and narrates the story from 1947.
In a departure from Sid Davis' traditional "kids in peril" scenarios, this 1952 film introduces us to Skipper - a bigoted dog who doesnt like the "funny looking' diverse neighborhood kids that his owner is playing with. Skipper also has problems with the neighborhood dogs, but learns his lesson when he accidentally gets covered in poster paint. Even though this film is awkward and the message is forced, it is one of the first made for young children that addresses the problems of racial intolerance.
Santa magically creates a Punch and Judy puppet show to the delight of children at a Christmas party. WARNING! Parents may wish to watch this before exposing innocent eyes to the comic brutality of a Punch and Judy puppet show from the late 1940s - including some very non-PC scenes. The value of this film is that it is a record of a performance by George Prentice whose Punch and Judy show achieved great popularity in Variety during the 1930's. The action is slick, fast and furious and incorporates several animal characters made by the performer. This slapstick style is not everyone's cup of tea and the children appear to have been filmed at a different time, but the delicacy of manipulation, combined with its speed, make this a must for connoisseurs of Punch and Judy.
Shows how to approach and handle animals, both wild and domestic, with an emphasis on dogs and horses. Surveys the general field of safety around animals pointing out the need for knowledge and skill, the dangers in handling wild animals and how to handle trained animals. Filmmakers seems to torment both kids and animals in the process of making this film. The decent footage of foxes, raccoons, bear cubs, squirrels and owls at the begining of the film is a nice bonus.
This 1949 film uses a childs curiosity about animals to convey its messages. Young Helen learns that she cleans herself just like her cat Kitty does. Unfortunately, Helen doesnt pick up on the fact the Kitty doesnt like to be groped by a room full of grimy school children. Films featuring animals and young children are usually as torturous to watch, as they were to make.
Shows how a gold-mantled ground squirrel at Crater Lake National Park has learned to solve problems connected with getting food. Illustrates how an animal can learn to find food that is hidden from view or out of reach.
