Following on from what proved a very popular post last week – Snow (1963) – we’ve decided to bring you more from the BFI archive.
First up is this 1970 short film, Rush Hour, which condenses the commuter rush at south London’s Waterloo station to just three minutes. Directed by British Transport Films’ regular Nick Nicholls, it uses time lapse photography to cram everything in.
Special Big Happy Video Awards go out to the two chaps at the cafe stand sporting historic sideburns and the dedicated fellow pulling the signal knobs. Top notch.
