Founded 75 years ago, the General Post Office's Film Unit promoted its various services and illustrated the communications revolution of the 1930s through the work of some of the most influential figures in the British documentary movement. This compilation of eight short films made between 1936 and 1939 highlights some of those directors whose work embraced social reportage, animation, advertising, drama-documentary and public information films, among them Alberto Cavalcanti, William Coldstream, Patrick Jackson, Len Lye, Norman McLaren, Lotte Reiniger, Harry Watt and Basil Wright
