THE BRITISH TRANSPORT FILMS COLLECTION: THREE DISCOVERING RAILWAYS (6-DISC DVD Set) Following the nationalisation of public transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1st 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. The third volume in a series of 6-disc box sets contains classics as The Finishing Line, Inter-City 125, and Just Like the Rest of Us, as well as rare gems like Centenary Express and Give Your Car a Holiday. 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.
