Product Description

A DAY IN THE LIFE (DVD + Blu-ray)
A film by John Krish

Winner - 'Best Documentary' Evening Standard Film Awards 2010

John Krish is one of British cinema's best-kept secrets: a master of post-war documentary filmmaking who repeatedly turned his works and commissions into truly stirring cinema.

This award-winning programme collects together four of Krish's most cherished films: The Elephant Will Never Forget (1953), a farewell to London's trams; They Took Us to the Sea (1961), a poignant record of a seaside outing for disadvantaged children; Our School (1962), charting the aspirations of the decade's young school-leavers; and I Think They Call Him John (1964) a deeply loving account of an elderly widower. Timelessly affecting and wonderfully entertaining these long lost films are truly worthy of rediscovery.

Special features

  • Presented in both High Definition and Standard Definition
  • I Want to Go to School (John Krish, 1959, 30 mins): a charming portrait of a typical day at primary school
  • Mr Marsh Comes to School (John Krish, 1961, 28 mins); a distinctly unorthodox film for teenagers
  • Interview with John Krish (2010, 19 mins, DVD only)
  • illustrated booklet with notes and essays by Kevin Brownlow, John Krish, BFI curator Patrick Russell and others
