  Children's Film Foundation Bumper Box Vol 2 on DVD [read more]
  Instant nostalgia
  A sizzling Saturday-afternoon sofa-thon is in store with this mouth-watering melange of cinematic corkers from the Children's Film Foundation: Britain's best-loved and longest-running producer of quality children's cinema for kids of all ages. Released in a 3-disc DVD set by the BFI on 16 March 2020, Children's Film Foundation Bumper Box Vol 2, brings together nine fantastic films and additional special features; witness long-lost sights and sounds of the British Isles in A Letter from the Isle of Wight, A Letter from Wales and A Letter from Ayrshire - three 1950s movie-missives; actor-turned-pop idol Simon Fisher Turner spills the beans on working for the CFF in the 1970s and Friend or Foe director John Krish appears in his final filmed interview. Here's the run-down on these top-drawer vintage feature-film smashers:

Disc 1:
Chase civil war booty in Lone Pine series author Malcolm Saville's Treasure at the Mill; hunt secret formulas with Arnold 'Dad's Army' Ridley in Wings of Mystery and cheer on Sally 'Man About the House' Thomsett and hiss at Warren 'Alf Garnett' Mitchell and his Seventy Deadly Pills!

Disc 2:
Step on the gas with Dennis 'Minder' Waterman and Wilfrid 'Steptoe' Brambell in Go Kart Go, shout Boo! at haunted-house developers Ronnie Barker and his bumbling lackey Bernard 'Doctor Who' Cribbins in A Ghost of a Chance and save the earth with a tribe of aquatic eco-warriors in The Sea Children.

Disc 3:
Take off for a model-plane Battle of Britain with Bill 'Heartbeat' Maynard in Sky Pirates, go underground in The Mine and the Minotaur and face the folly of war in Friend or Foe.

The first pressing includes an illustrated booklet with an essay and notes on the films and extras by BFI Video Producer Vic Pratt.
