The BFI presents three more classic kids films from the much loved Children's Film Foundation. This volume showcases weird and fantastic adventures, in three remastered films made by some of the leading figures of British cinema. The Boy Who Turned Yellow (1972) was the final film produced by the legendary British director/writer/producers Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (A Matter of Life and Death, Red Shoes). In this fantastic story, a young boy turns yellow and gets the ability to transport himself through the TV. The Monster of Highgate Ponds (1961) was made by the great director Alberto Cavalcanti (Went the Day Well?, Dead of Night). Three London children acquire a giant egg which hatches out into a mild-mannered monster. A Hitch in Time (1978) is an exciting adventure in which an eccentric professor's new time-machine keeps going wrong.
