The BFI presents three more classic kids' films from the much loved Children's Film Foundation. This volume showcases three remastered films - all weird and fantastic adventures - made by some of the leading figures of British cinema.

The Boy Who Turned Yellow (1972) was the final film produced by the legendary British director/writer/producers Michael Powell and Emeric Press burger (A Matter of Life and Death, The Red Shoes). In this fantastic story a young boy changes colour and gets the ability to transport himself through the TV.

The Monster of Highgate Ponds (1961) was made by the great director Alberto Calvalcanti (Went the Day Well, Dead of Night). Three London children acquire a giant egg which hatches out into a mild-mannered monster.

A Hitch in Time (1978) stars Patrick Troughton - the second Dr. Who - as an eccentric professor whose new time-machine keeps going wrong.
