Children’s Film Foundation Bumper Box Volume 5 offers up another gorgeous opportunity for a warm wallow in nostalgia, showcasing nine more of the best feature-length Saturday Morning Pictures ever made, from the UK’s best-loved, longest running purveyor of quality cinematic entertainment for kids.

You’ll find escapist fun and vintage thrills galore for all the family in this latest selection of terrific time-capsules and corking old-school classics, unleashed at last from the vaults of the BFI National Archive – from the far-away 1940s, right up to the electric 1980s, alongside a sumptuous array of exciting retro extras and a brand new documentary.

As usual, there are well-known names galore, with featured filmmaking talents including Gerald Thomas and Peter Rogers of ‘Carry On’ renown, trailblazing female director Muriel Box and adventure-specialist Don Chaffey all featured behind the cameras; and, in starring roles across this extensive set on the other side of the lens, famous faces like Carol White, Peter Butterworth, Robin Askwith and Keith Chegwin.
