Just watching it again for the first time in ages.

Got to be the greatest war documentary ever.

It still holds up now almost fifty years after it was made.

There was stuff that was still classified then. Like the breaking of the enigma code etc..but it still stands up today.

Sir Laurence Olivier's narration makes it more dramatic than it actually is. I've seen far better and more informative WW2 documentaries since that was first aired.

They couldn't make a documentary like that these days. It would be full of dramatic reconstructions and a queue of people waiting to describe how traumatised they were by it.

Good it got made while all the main players involved were alive and lucid enough to be interviewed.

Yes a true heroic gentleman  :like: I wonder what the fuck he would be thinking today after this Transvestite just got let off in court with a £630.00 fine for vandalising the RAF Bomber Command statue

She/ He / It said  :   she did not remember defacing the memorial and was a champion of the Black Lives Matter movement.

Memorial to honour the 55,573 who died while serving in the Bomber Command during the Second World War.

That's like a full St James park worth of people all gave their lives for us .

So that piece of shite could chuck a bucket of gloss over the memorial  :unlike: :unlike:

Why would you do that? Why?? Nothing but gratitude and respect for them and anyone who has served in the forces

Agree that Laurence oliviers narration of TWAW takes it to another level but the interviews with those directky involved in all sides, at least of the european conflict, are incredible. Ive not watched it all ever i dont think, does it do much on the war in the east and north africa? Wouldve been good to get some japs, anzacs and soldiers of the wider commonwealth as well as black us soldiers interviewed too

Wasnt there one done on the “great war” too, also made in the 60s/70s

‘World war 2 in colour’ on Netflix is definitely worth a watch.  :like:

Everything is so much easier to relate to in colour, better than you’d think.

14 years old... could have been an old lady in her 90s now.



Absolutely crazy this all went on in recent history and in memory of some people still alive today.

Yeah, The Great War from the 60s (which occasionally pops up on BBC4) It also features, almost nonchalant, reflections from participants.
There was another series on Channel 4 from around 15 years ago called The First World War. Better and more in depth in my opinion but (obviously) doesn't have any first hand interviewees.

Its the first hand accounts that make the difference to me. Cant stand docs with dramatisations or re-enactments. Ken burns docs in the american civil, the wild west and prohibition show how it should be done in the absence of surviving witnesses.

I actually have this boxset on VHS somewhere if it hasn't been chucked. Cost a fuckin bomb at the time.
Probably the greatest piece of viewing I've ever bought.
