Royal Mail Film Classics

EDINA is delighted to announce that, after encountering some unexpected licensing issues, the Royal Mail Film Classics collection is now available in JISC MediaHub. As you may remember, the collection was previously part of Film & Sound Online and  includes world-famous documentaries such as ‘Night Mail‘ and cinematic experiments such as ‘A Colour Box‘. The GPO Film Unit , which opened in the 1930′s,  showcased an array of artistic talent and provided a training ground for bright new British documentary film-makers.
