This type of thing is what has long been festering on my 'back burner' of //want to get into this...// category.

For several years I have passed up excellent lots of film strips/sets because I just haven't been able to make way for room & budget (and time). First and foremost, I don't wish to merely collect-or-hoard film strip items just to have them lying about. I need to know that I can get a good projector and audio attachment to actually make use of them. I have seen numerous of the white box case sets, that come with the strip rolls, the audio or LP sdtrk accompaniment and the booklets that often would have been issued with them. IF I can ever actually get into them, the natural world would be my primary personal interest, but also I would be happy to view any. I have 2 of the LP's sans the films that were acquired as asides to something else. Then again, many times  --at least on eBay-- you have people that have the film spools w/o the soundtracks. So, it would be an interesting sub-category to delve into. 

Thanks for showing me. Do you have any more? Are you able to play this one?

Well, not sure what the origin of this is, but it has the feel of a classic PSA presentation from the 70's or early 80's. The narrator totally reminds me of 1st or 4th grade film strips in school.

It starts off seemingly correct, but I think the end is not included, so unsure how long this might have been.
