Synopsis

This BBC2 Learning film is a compilation of short documentaries made by schoolchildren from across the UK, as part of Into Film’s Make Film–Greatest Generation project. Through interviews with the wartime generation combined with wonderful archive footage from the BFI and British Council, it tells the life stories of some of the extraordinary last survivors from this era. The film also highlights some useful top tips for filmmaking and would be a great way to introduce film projects to young people of any age.

What our educators say

"Some of them saw a clip from Wakolda (The German Doctor) on TV recently and really wanted to watch it. So I thought I’d take a chance, not expecting them to watch the whole film but the majority were absolutely gripped. "
