Synopsis

Groundbreaking drama-documentary directed by Humphrey Jennings about the lives and day-to-day work of a group of firemen during the London Blitz of World War Two, with all the parts played by real firemen. This fascinating film focuses on a new recruit as he gradually learns the ropes, and reaches its crux in his first mission as part of a team tackling a blaze in a warehouse on London's docks. The film helped convey the ordinary heroism that was taking place on the home front in an embattled 1943 Britain.

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
