Three intergalactic adventures from the archives of the Children's Film Foundation land on DVD for the very first time. For over 30 years the Children's Film Foundation produced quality entertainment for young audiences, employing the cream of British filmmaking talent.  Supersonic Saucer (1956) tells the heart-warming story of Meba, an adorable baby flying saucer from Venus with otherworldly powers who arrives on an exploratory mission to Earth. Adopted by a group of children, he helps the youngsters prevent a robbery at their school. It looks as if nothing can stop the village of Byway being demolished to make way for a new motorway in the delightful Kadoyng (1972). Until, that is, a jovial visitor with an unusual appendage descends from the planet Stoikal and helps a trio of children foil the construction work. This enjoyable escapade stars journeyman comic actor Bill Owen (O Lucky Man!). The award-winning The Glitterball (1977) sees two young boys come to the aid of a tiny spherical alien on the run from both the Air Force and a devious petty crook who is trying to return to its mothership. A perennial CFF favourite starring veteran British character actor Ron Pember
