British Transport Films:
Going Places FAST 6-DVD Box Set
Following 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. It became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain.
This box set presents a selection of films produced by BTF for London Transport in the post-war period, including construction of the Victoria Line. It also contains films on the new services offered by British Transport during the same period, such as The Future Works and Partners in Prosperity.
