Synopsis:
Night Mail (1936)
The lasting appeal of Night Mail, celebrating the Postal's Special run from London to Scotland, is that it has all the attributes of the classic British documentary style established by John Grierson. Its realism and lyrical structure perfectly complemented by the verse of Auden and the music of Britten.

West Highland (1960)
By 1960, the reign of steam on Britain's most scenic railway, the West Highland, was drawing to its close. John Gray, a BBC producer and sound engineer with the GPO Film Unit in the 1930s, made West Highland as his tribute to this wonderful line. Perhaps the last of the lyrical documentaries, it completes a superb double bill for both film and railway enthusiasts in crisp black and white. Released on DVD for the first time.
