Collection of news reports from the British Movietone News, the first sound newsreel service in the country. During the Second World War the British public flocked to cinemas to watch news updates from across the allied war effort. This collection contains a rare selection of these reports covering the home front and battles across Europe and Africa.
Hungry for news during World War II people flocked to cinemas to watch British Movietone News cover both the home front and overseas. For the first time many of these news reels have been remastered for this special Collector’s Edition – with some unseen since the war. Sometimes heroic sad or hilarious; this collection is a testament of British spirit and humour that will delight those who lived through it and also younger generations learning about this major event in British history.
