Charley says: I'll be back.

BRITAIN'S top public information film characters - such as Tufty the Squirrel and Charley the Cat - are being revived.

For the past 60 years, the Government broadcasts have advised us on how to do everything from surviving a nuclear war to blowing your nose.

Now the National Archives are putting the 60 best examples online.

Younger generations will remember the Charley Says warning films from the 1970s about going off with strangers.

In the same decade, Tufty the Squirrel dispensed road safety tips.

The National Archives in Kew has begun with films from 1945-1951.

Gavin Houtheusen, from the organisation, said: "Everyone can remember at least one of these films and lessons they learned."
