In this, the 70th anniversary year of British Transport Films, and following the release of The Best of British Transport Films Blu-ray box-set in May, BTF on DVD makes its triumphant return in this 2-disc set featuring 14 films, newly remastered and available on DVD for the first time.

Following the nationalisation of public transport in 1948, the British Transport Commission set up its own in-house film production unit. Launched on 1 May 1949, British Transport Films was led for 25 years by Edgar Anstey - a founding father of the British documentary movement - and became one of the largest industrial film units in Britain. Over a period of more than 35 years, BTF produced an unrivalled documentary film legacy for generations of film and transport enthusiasts. The BFI's previous DVD collections of BTF films are amongst the label's all-time best sellers.
