Synopsis:
Triple bill of British movies produced by the Children's Film Foundation. In The Salvage Gang four children try to raise money to replace a broken saw, taking them on an unexpected journey through the capital. Directed by the acclaimed John Krish (I Think They Call Hir John) this affectionate tour of bomb-damaged London features a young Frazer Hines and an appearance by Wilfrid Brambell. Operation Third Form, featuring a fresh-faced John Moulder-Brown (Deep End) in a sparkling performance as the schoolboy out to foil a pair of north London crooks, is a pacey boy's own adventure complete with a groovy 1960s soundtrack.
Night Ferry stars Bernard Cribbins as Pyramid, a dastardly master-of-disguise who plans to smuggle an ancient Egyptian mummy out of the country. When young Jeff (Graham Fletcher) discovers the plan, a dangerous chase via London's Victoria and Clapham stations ensues.
