British Transport Films collection

Post by Eileensmith » Wed Jun 19, 2019 4:49 am

The Brirish Film Institute has released a collection of 21 historic films made by British Transport Films in the 1950s and 60s. Most are railway-related, including classics such as John Schlesinger’s Terminus, and all have been newly digitally remastered from original film materials. A review of this excellent Blu-ray release can be seen here: ... sportFilms
