    BFI Vol 2 See Britain by Train DVD - Description

    See Britain by Train is the second of the BFI's double-disc DVD compilations of British Transport Films. Combining favourites from the much loved and best-selling video series with additional material, it represents the very best of British travel filmmaking from the post-war era.

    Highlights include:

    * Cyclists Special (1955) - A very rare and novel film of how British Railways can cater for party travel.
    * Holiday (1957) - The 1950s free-cinema movement inspired new styles of non-fiction filmmaking. This film catches all the atmosphere of a traditional holiday by the sea, along with the zest and good humour of ordinary people released from their everyday routine.
    * The Heart is Highland (1952) - One of the most popular of all the BTF films shows aspects of the lives of Highlanders, linking developments in industry, agriculture and transport with the country's dramatic past.
    * Any Man's Kingdom (1956) - Previously unavailable in the BTF series, this stunning film also captures the heart-warming Northumbrian atmosphere.
    * The England of Elizabeth (1957) - This triple international award-winning film looks back in wonder at the Shakespearean era and the time of the first Queen Elizabeth, with commentary narrated by Alec Clunes and a score by Ralph Vaughan Williams
