British Transport Films Collection Railways For Ever! [6-DVD)

British Transport Films Collection Railways For Ever! [6-DVD)

THE BRITISH TRANSPORT FILMS COLLECTION: TWO
RAILWAYS FOR EVER! (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 second volume in a series of 6-disc box sets contains classics as Journey into Spring, Let's Go to Birmingham and The Land of Robert Burns, as well as rare gems, including A Place in the Team, An Artist Looks at Churches, and The Travolators.

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.
