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

"It really is a chance for us to open children's minds to the power of film not just as a vehicle for entertainment but also as a way in to understanding their own world and the worlds of people whose lives are very different."

- Marlon Perkins, Teacher, Whitstable and Seasalter Endowed CofE Junior School, Kent
