Synopsis:
Have a sizzling Saturday-afternoon sofa-thon 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. It's fun, excitement and adventure all the way from the fabulous Fifties to the excellent Eighties, with this second bumper box set for the whole family - crammed full with nine sugar-rush top-drawer vintage feature-film smashers and an array of awesome extras.
So turn off that tablet, plump up the cushions, mute the modern world and station yourself on the settee - cos it's time for another cracking retro binge-watch bonanza! 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 Warren 'Alf Garnett' Mitchell's 'Seventy Deadly Pills'! Step on the gas with Dennis 'Minder' Waterman and Wilfred 'Steptoe' Brambell in 'Go Kart Go', shout Boo! at haunted-house developers Ronnie Barker and his bumbling lackey Bernard Dr Who Cribbins in 'A Ghost of a Chance' and save the earth with a tribe of aqua eco-warriors in 'The Sea Children'! 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'! 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 1950's movie-missives to write home about. As if that wasn't enough, actor-turned-pop idol Simon Fisher Turner spills the beans on working for the CFF in the 1970's and Friend or Foe director John Krish appears in his last interview.
