British Transport Films: Collection 2 - See Britain By Train

£5.99 Out Of Stock

Product description

Following the nationalisation of transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production and distribution unit, headed by Egar Anstey OBE, one of the pioneers of British documentary films. The unit produced hundreds of travelogues promoting travel on Britain's railways and other forms of transport. Consistently winning top awards at film festivals, including an Oscar in 1966, the films provide a wonderfully crafted visual record of 20th century life in rural and urban Britain. This release features 12 of these films, including: 'West Country Journey', 'Letter for Wales', 'Cyclists Special', 'Holiday', 'The Heart is Highland', 'Any Man's Kingdom', 'Glasgow Belongs to Me', 'England of Elizabeth', 'Capital Visit', 'Heart of England', 'East Anglian Holiday' and 'The Coasts of Clyde'.

Oxfam Bookshop Lymington

Lymington is on the South coast, bordering on the New Forest National Park which was created as a Royal Forest in 1079 by William the Conqueror, and first recorded as 'Nova Foresta' in the Doomsday Book in 1086. Our Oxfam Shop at 73, The High Street is in a lovely Georgian building, the tallest in Lymington. The elegant Georgian buildings lining the wide main street were built mostly for merchants in the local salt trade. The famous Saturday market brings the town to life with its variety of stalls. The area is renowned for outdoor pursuits, including camping, sailing, windsurfing, and surfing, as well as forest walks and horse riding.
