This is a plea for help from UK-based members who can remember watching TV in the 1970's.

There was a TV advert by Michael Palin in which he described various methods of 'ending it all' which were "Not Recommended" - for example, sticking your head in an electric oven, lying down on a disused railway line, etc. The advert was (I think) a public service advert to warn people abbout a very real hazard which could be fatal. The final message was "(doing this) is definitely Not Recommended". The thing is I can't recall what the advert was about! My hope is to find it on YouTube but without knowing the subject matter it's a bit difficult.

If anybody can remember this advert and can help put me out of my misery, it would be very much recommended!

Thanks

Thanks for the reply. You were close! After your post I did a search to see if was for seatbelts and this led me to find a reference to the advert in a Road Safety website.

And that led me to find the advert on Youtube.

So thanks again!

Asking questions on this forum - definitely recommended!
