SEVENTY DEADLY PILLS is a black and white drama, from 1964, in which thieves steal a doctor's car, after which some dangerous pills in his medical bag are found by children who think they are sweets.

Threat and horror

There is mild threat throughout as the children are seen handling the dangerous pills, believing them to be sweets. There is lots of chat amongst the children about trying the sweets while the police broadcast messages about the deadly nature of the missing pills. Eventually one child does eat the sweets and collapses at home. She's taken to hospital and makes a full recovery.

A child briefly handles a penknife while discussing trading it for some other items.
