The following is a list of all known BTF Productions plus films from other sources available in BTF library catalogues, including the year of publication. Dates given signify the year of first publication. It should be noted that many films utilised extracts from previous publications and 'stock shots' that may have been taken several years previously. The film data in this list has been compiled from BTF catalogues with additional references from John Reed's authoritative book 'Moving Images'.

Where specific details are known for a particular production, they can be accessed by clicking on the relevant link. Details of further films are continually coming to light and these pages are being expanded constantly.

Films shown in bold lettering will have additional information provided such as a series of actual screen shots, stills from the BTF Library catalogues, film credits, or reviews.

Films shown in italics were produced neither by or on behalf of British Transport Films but were still available from the BTF loan library in the early years of its existence (i.e. pre-1960) until sufficient numbers of BTF's own productions became available. These were produced by the pre-nationalisation railway companies, London Transport, foreign railway companies and outside film producers such as the BBC and other industrial film units. Only the London Transport 'Cine Gazette' films are currently shown at this time.

Despite exhaustive research, a few gaps in the BTF 'story' still appear. Please contact the webmaster if you are able to supply any information regarding outstanding film descriptions.
