Synopsis:
A wizard weekend for all the family is guaranteed with his carefully curated assortment of tasty cinematic treats from the 'Children's Film Foundation': Britain's best-loved and longest running producer of quality cinema entertainment for kids of all ages. It's fun and adventure all the way from the feisty Fifties to the electric Eighties with this bumper box set, lovingly loaded with nine fab, fast, furious full-fat vintage features and a brand-new documentary.
Switch off your phone, grab the duvet and hit the sofa-'cos it's time to bed down for a binge-watch bonanza! Stand well back for 1960's bonfire-night fun in 'Peril for the Guy', have a classic kick-about with George Best and Bobby Charlton at Manchester United in 'Cup Fever' and share your orange squash with an incredible invisible rabbit in 'Mr. Horatio Knibbles'. Take your seats in the 'Big Top' for circus hi-jinx with 'Anoop and the Elephant', befriend the world's only ice-lolly-loving Yeti in 'The Zoo Robbery' and become a young 1970's eco-warrior for 'The Battle of Billy's Pond'. Attempt the avert nuclear disaster in the nail-biting 'One Hour to Zero', chase cockney crooks down London's canals as you join '4D Special Agents' and enlist The Who's Roger Daltrey to back your 1980's reggae band on Brighton Pier in 'Pop Pirates!'. Take doggie delight in 'Rover Makes Good', 'Juno helps Out' and 'To the Rescue' three 1950's canine crackers from the CFF vaults, guaranteed to make you roll over, woof and wag your tail. Do your film-history revision fun-style with a new interview with veteran CFF writer John Tully (16 mins) and 'The Children's Film Foundation Story' (84 mins) a fabulous new feature-length documentary telling the true tale of the Foundation and the talents who worked there.
