Documentary 1951 8 mins


This Ministry of Health appeal for blood donors dramatises the story of a girl young who requires a transfusion after a nasty fall. It conveys in urgent terms the vital work of the transfusion services, with the tension suitably amplified when the ambulance gets caught at a railway crossing. But the resounding message is that the most integral component of successful transfusions is not one provided by health professionals - the general public's blood.
