John Krish is one of British cinema's best-kept secrets: a master of post-war documentary filmmaking who repeatedly turned his works and commissions into truly stirring cinema. This award-winning programme collects together four of Krish's most cherished films: The Elephant Will Never Forget (1953), a farewell to London's trams; They Took Us to the Sea (1961), a poignant record of a seaside outing for disadvantaged children; Our School (1962), charting the aspirations of the decade's young school-leavers; and I Think They Call Him John (1964) a deeply loving account of an elderly widower. Timelessly affecting and wonderfully entertaining these long lost films are truly worthy of rediscovery.
