Following the nationalisation of transport in 1948 the
British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit.
Launched on 1 May 1949, and led for 25 years by Edgar Anstey – a founding
father of the British documentary movement.
The third volume in a series of
6-disc box sets contains such classics as ‘The Finishing Line’, ‘Inter-City 125’ and ‘Just Like the Rest of Us’ as
well as rare gems like ‘Centenary
Express’ and ‘Give Your
Car a Holiday’.
