The BFI presents three more classics kids' films from the much loved Children's Film Foundation.

Cult favourite Sammy's Super T-Shirt (1978) – arguably the most sought after gem in the CFF library – finally comes to DVD, accompanied by two other classics from the collection. Sammy dreams of becoming a super athlete, despite his puny build. When his lucky training t-shirt is thrown into a scientist's lab it becomes imbued with 'super strength' power. When Sammy manages to recover the t-shirt he uses his new-found strength to out-run baddies and bullies alike.

Soapbox Derby (1957), sees a young Michael Crawford scrapping with a rival South London gang in Battersea, while The Sky-Bike (1967) stars Liam Redmond as an eccentric inventor trying to achieve more than just speed.

Directed by Charles Frend and Jeremy Summers.

Extras
  • Fully illustrated booklet with essays by Andrew Roberts and Vic Pratt, and a note from Michael Crawford.
