Formerly the G.P.O. Film Unit, it was an organisation within the British Government's Ministry of Information during World War II. Its remit was to make films for the general public in Britain and abroad. Output included short information and documentary films, as well as longer drama-documentaries. It continued to produce films, as part of the Central Office of Information (COI), until it was disbanded.
