Following the nationalisation of transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1st 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.
British Transport Films Volume 10, London on the Move, marks a most welcome return for the BFI’s celebrated and best-selling DVD series, and marks a shift in focus onto travel in the nation’s capital.
