Please wear your sweater

the temp is set for the records

This is the Night Mail crossing the border…

I love this film, and am so glad the whole thing is available online. Watch right to the end for W.H. Auden’s marvellous poem.

The 22 minute documentary was made in 1936 about a London, Midland and Scottish mail train which took post between London and Scotland. It was made by the Post Office’s film unit.
