"It's a rotten idea, washing dogs," moans one of the four plucky London urchins desperate for cash in John Krish's The Salvage Gang, one of the three thoroughly charming short features in this delightful collection of Children's Film Foundation pictures, made between 1958 and 1976.

The other two films, Operation Third Form, about teenage detectives, and Night Ferry (starring Bernard Cribbins), are equally spirited, droll and unpatronising tales of childhood adventure.
