Best of British Transport Films: 70th Anniversary (2-Blu-ray disc set) (DVD + Blu-ray)
Directors: Various

Presenting the Best of British Transport Films (BTF) - newly remastered in stunning High Definition for the very first time to celebrate the 70th anniversary. A descendant of the British sponsored documentary tradition, British Transport Films was established in 1949 to focus a spotlight on transport as a National undertaking, to create an appetite for travel and to entice the public to use nationalised transport. Over a period of more than 35 years BTF produced an unrivalled documentary film legacy for generations of film and transport enthusiasts.

This new Blu-ray compilation gathers together 21 films representing the cream of the celebrated BTF collection. All have been newly digitally remastered to 2K from original film materials by the BFI, except for Geoffrey Jones legendary film Rail (1967) which is presented in its glorious coat of technicolor with a stunning new 4K restoration by the BFI National Archive.
