Summary: Royal Observer Corps recruiting commercial.
Description: Two ROC members enter an underground monitoring post as the commentator remarks that "nobody wants to think of a nuclear attack but it could happen - and most of us could survive". The film briefly illustrates the activity in a monitoring headquarters as the commentary indicates what kind of commitments and activities it involves for volunteers. Closing freeze-frame gives the address to write to as "Royal Observer Corps, Stanmore, Middlesex".
