Featuring 40 films by such luminaries as Humphrey Jennings, Paul Rotha and Ruby Grierson, this collection is a major retrospective of the British documentary film movement during its period of greatest influence. The diverse and compelling films contained here - many of which are made available for the first time since their original release - bear witness to the social and industrial transformations of a rapidly changing world. This unique collection captures the spirit and strength, concerns and resolve of Britain and its people before, during and immediately after the Second World War.

  • Includes interviews with some of the directors featured on the discs
  • Includes a 15 minute film of John Grierson (the 'father' of documentary) at the National Film Theatre in 1959
