Film information

Story: Following the nationalisation of transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production and distribution unit, headed by Egar Anstey OBE, one of the pioneers of British documentary films. The unit produced hundreds of travelogues promoting travel on Britain's railways and other forms of transport. Consistently winning top awards at film festivals, including an Oscar in 1966, the films provide a wonderfully crafted visual record of 20th century life in rural and urban Britain. This release features 12 of these films, including: 'West Country Journey', 'Letter for Wales', 'Cyclists Special', 'Holiday', 'The Heart is Highland', 'Any Man's Kingdom', 'Glasgow Belongs to Me', 'England of Elizabeth', 'Capital Visit', 'Heart of England', 'East Anglian Holiday' and 'The Coasts of Clyde'.
