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 foundling father of the British documentary movement – it became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain.
The second volume in a series of 6-disc box sets contains such 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.
