Following the nationalisation of transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1 May 1949, and led for 25 years by Edgar Anstey - a founding father of the British documentary movement - it became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain.
The first in a series of 6-disc box sets contains such 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 film notes by BFI curators, and full credits.
