Trade Test transmission, BBC2.
First showing: 3rd October 1968
Final showing: 27th January 1969
Approx. 10 minutes

This was one of the productions from British Transport Films. The unit was formed in May 1949 with Edgar Anstey as its first Producer in Charge. Anstey was a protégé of John Grierson the principle documentary filmmaker in the 1930s and the founder of the British Documentary Movement.

The official description:

"Through the forward-looking windows of the new diesel multiple-unit trains reveals a new world of signs, signals and railway sights to those who ride behind the driver. For children, particularly, find this is a fascinating experience. This film communicates something of their excitement and wonder as well as some of the wry, un-conscious humour with which their pertinent and amusing questions and comments are so often interlerded".

Actually on a personal level, while some people may find the children's comments delightful, I watch this one with the volume turned off!
