Synopsis

The Children's Film Foundation was a British production company set up in 1951 in order to make films specifically for children. This resulted in lots of short films featuring young people on silly, surreal and thrilling adventures across the UK including this set of three films called The Race is On. Featuring Soapbox Derby about two London gangs who decide to hold a cart race against one another, The Sky-Bike about a young boy who invents a flying machine and Sammy's Super T-Shirt about a 12-year-old boy with his heart set on winning a race who gets embroiled in a scientific experiment testing a super strength t-shirt.

What our educators say

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
