The COI Collection Volume Eight: Your Children and You

A fascinating look at the social history of Britain and our ever-evolving attitudes to children and child-rearing.

The BFI continues its celebrated series of releases from the COI archive with this double-disc collection 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.
