World War 2 in Colour [DVD]
An award-winning documentary filled with never-before-seen images, WWII IN COLOUR is a spectacle of colour, sights, sounds and memories. At its core, World War II was a black-and-white struggle between good and evil. But the everyday scenes of carnage, human resistance and savage warfare were much more complex.
An assemblage of colour footage and photographs from national archives and private collections, WWII IN COLOUR delivers striking perspectives on the soldiers day-to-day experiences. From the first draftees thrown into the breach, to the sheer boredom between battles, to the uniforms worn and the objects carried, this unparalleled collection of voices is further illuminated by letters and diaries, communications from the battlefield and the sounds and songs of the era.
Narrated by Peter Coyote (Erin Brockovich, E.T.) the 7 programmes included in WWII IN COLOUR offer an intimate view of World War II. Programmes include: WWII In Colour: Face To Face Battleground Anchors Aweigh Air War Fueling the Fire Dressed to Kill The Price of War
