Bushells Tea Advertisement: The World of the Future (c.1941)


This colour animated Bushells tea advertisement from 1941 paints a picture of what it will be like in the future and claims that regardless of the fast-paced lives we all live and changes to the world, Bushells tea will always remain the same.

Curator’s notes

Produced during the Second World War, this animated cinema advertisement takes on a newsreel form complete with voice-over. It reassures its viewers that no matter what the future holds, you can rely on Bushells tea to remain the same.
