Decimal Coinage – New System (film #7 in the Public Info. section of TVArk). [Category: Public Service]

This brief British public service announcement tells people that if they’re confused by the new decimal money system, they should “think decimal,” i.e. 1 pound=100 pence. This totally clears up the confusion a ditzy housewife experiences upon receiving her change in a shop. This stereotype makes the PSA slightly campy.

Ratings: Camp/Humor Value: ***. Weirdness: **. Historical Interest: ****. Overall Rating: ***.
