Synopsis

This is the third in the series of collected documentaries made by the groundbreaking GPO Film Unit. This volume contains films produced during the years 1939-40 and its content, taken chronologically, offers a fascinating insight into the gradual creep into World War Two: it begins with The City, full of optimism for the benefits offered by London's redevelopment; to If War Should Come itself, with its advice on building shelters and talk of potential personal sacrifices. The collection also contains works by the legendary Humphrey Jennings - a report on the Blitz that was instrumental in inspiring greater US support for the Allied struggle.

What our educators say

"We are currently screening The Wizard of Oz, profound film that it is, and the last film Wall-E. It's been rewarding observing the KS1 6 year olds run the gamut of emotions from wonder to sadness to joy. "
