THE BRITISH TRANSPORT FILMS COLLECTION VOLUME 12
THE DRIVING FORCE
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.
Volume twelve in this series of double-DVD sets presents a selection of previously unreleased films that look at the improvements, developments and new services offered by British Transport in the post-war period. Highlights include Future Works (1969), an enthralling tour of the Swindon railway workshops, and Partners in Prosperity (1982), which outlines plans for a truly modern integrated road and rail transport structure in Scotland.
This digitally remastered collection is a must for the transport enthusiast and the documentary aficionado alike.
