Following the nationalisation of public transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1 May 1949, British Transport Films was led for 25 years by Edgar Anstey – a founding father of the British documentary movement – and became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain.

This 2-disc collection includes 14 films never before released on DVD including Contact with the Heart of England, Railbus for the 80’s, Five in Millions and Speedlink: The Quiet Revolution. Also included on this release is a new score for Safe on the Track? by
composer Mordecai Smyth. Includes a fully illustrated booklet with new writing on the films by BFI curator and BTF expert Steven Foxon and post-war transport historian and enthusiast Stephen Edwards.

This digitally remastered collection is a must for the transport enthusiast and the documentary aficionado alike.
