Children's Film Foundation: London Tales The Salvage Gang | Operation Third Form | Night FerryFilms by John Krish, David Eady For over 30 years the Children's Film Foundation produced quality entertainment for young audiences, employing the cream of British filmmaking talent. Unavailable for years, these much-loved films finally make a welcome return to our screens in newly remastered editions. In The Salvage Gang four children try to raise money to replace a broken saw, taking them on an unexpected journey through the capital. Directed by the acclaimed John Krish (I Think They call Him John) this affectionate tour of bomb-damaged London features a young Frazer Hines and an appearance by Wilfrid Brambell Operation Third Form, featuring a fresh-faced John Moulder-Brown (Deep End) in a sparkling performance as the schoolboy out to foil a pair of north London crooks, is a pacey boy's own adventure complete with a groovy 1960s soundtrack Night Ferry stars Bernard Cribbins as Pyramid, a dastardly master-of-disguise who plans to smuggle an ancient Egyptian mummy out of the country. When young Jeff (Graham Fletcher) discovers the plan, a dangerous chase via London's Victoria and Clapham stations ensues Special Features Brand new High Definition transfers from original film elements preserved in the BFI National Archive Topic Children's Theatre (1959, 14 mins): US TV show Topic on the work of The Children's Film Foundation, with John Krish on the set of The Salvage Gang, J Arthur Rank and CFF director Mary Field Fully illustrated booklet with essays by Andrew Roberts and Vic Pratt UK | 1958 + 1966 + 1976 | black & white, and colour | English language | 50 mins + 56 mins + 58 mins | DVD9 | Dolby Digital mono audio (320 kbps) | Original aspect ratio 1.33:1
