Charley is our favourite.

A scruffy ginger cat that warned millions of children about the dangers of strangers and matches has been voted the nation's favourite public information film.

Six short films featuring Charley, a moggy with the voice of the late comedian Kenny Everett, have been screened since 1973.

Now thousands of viewers have voted the series their favourite public information film from the past 60 years. Charley received 9,100 of the 25,000 votes cast to win.

It was followed in the poll by Tufty the Squirrel, Joe and Petunia, Dark and Lonely Water and the Green Cross Man.

Dozens of memorable films created by the Government's Central Office of Information (COI) are being dusted off as part of its 60th anniversary celebrations.
