British Transport Films: Collection 5 - Off The Beaten Track Film Poster

Synopsis

Fifth release in the BTF re-mastered transport films archive. This collection veers away from the rail travel milieu and into that of road, rail and sea transport. These public information films did their earnest best to present a picture of the utmost modernity and of a country whose future was inextricably linked with transport. No matter what the ends may have been, the means was transport! Films in this collection include 'Ocean Terminal (1952)', 'Dodging The Column (1952)', 'Link Span (1956)', 'Every Valley (1957)', 'Journey Into Spring (1957)', 'Betweeen The Tides (1958)' 'Giant Load (1958)', 'They Take The High Road (1960)', 'Wild Highlands (1961)', 'Wild Wings (1965)', 'An Artist Looks At Churches (1959)', 'Railways Forever (1970)', 'The Scene From Melbury House (1972)', 'Age Of Invention (1975)' and 'Seaspeed Express (1980)'.
