Tidy up at Night (1969)

How we used to live. I actually remember seeing this PIF in the 80s, when really it should have been irrelevant due to electrical grounds having been installed by then. Still, it's a nice insight into life in the late 1960s, and I think I detect the voice of Richard Briers in there. A charming and non-scary PIF. And remember to turn off your computer before you go to bed.
