British Transport Collection A Future on Rail (6 disc set) dvd

THE BRITISH TRANSPORT FILMS COLLECTION: ONE
A FUTURE ON RAIL (6-DISC DVD Set)

Following the nationalisation of public transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1st May 1949, British Transport Films was led for 25 years by Edgar Anstey - a founding father of the British documentary movement - and became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain.

The first volume in a series of 6-disc box sets contains classics as Terminus, Blue Pullman and John Betjeman Goes by Train, as well as lesser-known gems, including Under the River, Cyclists Special and E for Experimental.

This digitally remastered collection is a must for the transport enthusiast and the documentary aficionado alike. It includes a fully illustrated booklet with extensive films notes by BFI curators, and full credits.
