5.0 out of 5 stars BIg Trak is a big hit, 21 Aug 2011
= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Bigtrak (Toy)
My grandson Fred had seen a BIgTrak at a friends house and wanted one for his birthday.
It was an immediate hit not just with him but with his two brothers as well.
Can't comment on its durability as its new but its clearly a fun toy..

4.0 out of 5 stars Recent History at its best, 14 Dec 2010
The BFI do an incredible job of finding and archiving films which could otherwise just be lost to us.
This set of films covers that crucial period when the war was over but the country seemed uncertain of where it went next.
Social changes were significant and this whole aspect rapidly grew into the seventies when the roots of our new society were growing.
Of course theres propaganda - were new towns ever going to be the utopia that the film offers - but the feel of how life was for so many people does come over strongly in the sharp black and white photography and crisp direction - star directors often cut their teeth on these movies - and the strong social themes.
The film about the deprived children having a day out at the seaside is worth the price alone.
Its hard to believe that the world in these films was our world only a short time ago
For anyone who is interested in modern history and loves film heres the perfect package.
