This collection of 22 documentaries, created by the film production arm of the General Post Office in the years leading up to World War Two, is a major piece of British film history. John Grierson, the 'father of British documentary', ran the GPO Film Unit as a place for making not infomercials, but radical, socially conscious work that was far ahead of its time. As well as providing an insight into life in the 1930s, the collection is full of trailblazing filmmaking including — Night Mail, which follows a steam train carrying post speeding its way to the sleeping multitudes across the country.
