Documentary, Short Films
Three films by British documentary pioneer Humphrey Jennings. In those days, nobody pretended that documentaries captured real life as it happened this is life re-created by those involved. But these films about Britain during World War Two are still both vital bits of history and great cinema. I Was a Fireman is about volunteers trying to deal with a city set ablaze by bombs, Diary For Timothy is about the early days of a baby born during the fighting, and Listen To Britain is a more atmospheric piece about the mood of the nation.
E means that the film's distributor believes the film to be 'exempt' from a BBFC age rating. E certificate films are often designed to inform, educate or instruct.
