Avaliable on: DVD

The BFI continues its celebrated series of releases from the COI archive with this double-disc selection of films made by the UK government about childhood and children. From post-war films made to promote healthy eating, good schooling and getting your baby to sleep, through to a 1980s documentary on artificial insemination, Your Children and You is a fascinating look at the social history of Britain and our ever-evolving attitudes to children and child-rearing. This collection also includes rare films from the Wellcome Trust archive on the themes of childbirth and motherhood, three of the films feature newly recorded scores.
