All nine double-disc volumes of the BFI's fabulous British Transport Films archive (volume 9 comes in late 2008), which forms an important and enduring records of Britain's transport heritage. However, the films have a much wider appeal than transport, as they give a social history of the country from the early 1950s through to the mid 1980s.

Yeah - there's a bit of a discrepancy on the no of disks - Amazon actually show it as an 8 disk set :? The whsmith's one does say 18 in the title though :thumbsup:

Worth a pop - cheers bookie! :thumbsup:

The Amazon set looks to be a different one, and not the 17/18 disc set. Anyone know any more?

There's a reference here dvd.ciao.co.uk/Bri…405 to it being £75-00 at Amazon and if you clink the link it takes you to the deal page.

Same title & ASIN number is 120 Euros on Amazon.de

There's a website for British Transport Films here ]http//ww…uk/ and a list of DVDs (though not the DVD set) ]here .

The existing collections I assume are the 8 x 2 disc collections so far = 16 disc plus
"GEOFFREY JONES : THE RHYTHM OF FILM" and "Night Train"
OR it includes the as yet unreleased volume 9 i.e. 9x2 = 18

It's not unusual for Amazon to misreport the number of disc in a multi-disc collection

Cheers OP.

Have given this a go; will make a nice present for someone if it works out.

Cheers again,

Looks like it's gone.

Not good news! If they've (mis)sold that many, there's a lot of money at stake to fulfill all the orders.;-)

Yep - agree with Newbold on that. Looks like there was some bulk buying going on there.
