First transmitted in 1946, these are highlights of the films shown on BBC Television since it reopened after a seven-year gap caused by World War II.

The BBC's television service had stopped transmitting on 1 September 1939, and did not resume until 7 June 1946 - the day before the first anniversary of Victory in Europe.

The resumption of programming was introduced by Jasmine Bligh: "Good afternoon everybody. How are you? Do you remember me, Jasmine Bligh? Well here we are after a lapse of nearly seven years ready to start again and of course we are all terribly excited and thrilled."
