• Event: "Railways in the 1950s" (archive ciné films) -- Frank Banfield

    Frank Banfield presents another of his very popular evenings with a further selection from his extensive collection of archive 16mm ciné film.

    Previous evenings have included documentaries, BTC publicity, vintage adverts, cartoons, and excerpts from home movies. This time, Frank will be concentrating on vintage railway films from the 1950s.
