Children's Film Foundation - Bumper Box: Volume 5

£24.99

Released: 22nd April 2024. Children’s Film Foundation Bumper Box Volume 5 offers up another gorgeous opportunity for a warm wallow in nostalgia, showcasing nine more of the best feature-length Saturday Morning Pictures ever made, from the UK’s best-loved, longest running purveyor of quality cinematic entertainment for kids. You’ll find escapist fun and vintage thrills galore for all the family in this latest selection of terrific time-capsules and corking old-school classics, unleashed at last from the vaults of the BFI National Archive – from the far-away 1940s, right up to the electric 1980s, alongside a sumptuous array of exciting retro extras and a brand new documentary. As usual, there are well-known names galore, with featured filmmaking talents including Gerald Thomas and Peter Rogers of ‘Carry On’ renown, trailblazing female director Muriel Box and adventure-specialist Don Chaffey all featured behind the cameras; and, in starring roles across this extensive set on the other side of the lens, famous faces like Carol White, Peter Butterworth, Robin Askwith and Keith Chegwin. The Films: The Secret Tunnel (1947), Circus Friends (1956), The Piper’s Tune (1962), The Rescue Squad (1963), Daylight Robbery (1964), All at Sea (1969), The Hostages (1975), Robin Hood Junior (1975), The Boy Who Never Was (1980) Extras: Five short films from the Children’s Film Foundation collection – Bouncer Breaks Up (1953, 9 mins), A Good Pull-Up (1953, 17 mins), The Chiffy Kids (1976, 17 mins), The Magnificent 6 and ½ (1976, 16 mins), Our Magazine No 11 (1955, 10 mins) Danger at the CFF (2023, 16 mins) : a new documentary by filmmaker and CFF aficionado Jason Gurr as he revisits some of the stunts that featured in the films and how child actors wouldn’t be expected to do such things now!  Fully illustrated booklet featuring new writing by CFF expert Vic Pratt and a CFF quiz by the BFI’s Trevona Thomson
