Brunel's Railway Today (1985)
8 minutes - Colour

A high-speed journey from Paddington to Bristol via InterCity 125. During the film we flash back to the railway at its birth, with period drawings of the line in the 19th Century. Made for the GWR 150 celebrations (1835-1985), it was the penultimate BTF film, and like so many of their productions over the previous 35 years features music by Edward Williams.
