The Best of BTF 70th Anniversary (2-blu-ray disc) Blu Ray

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.
