They Shall Not Grow Old
« on: November 07, 2018, 07:49:40 AM »

Made a rare visit to the cinema to catch this last night.

Despite my prior reservations about the format it works pretty well.

The colourisations of the WWI footage have been done sympathetically, the additions of voices to the archive films is good and not overwhelming, but the real star of the show is the veterans' recollections.

If you have even a passing interest in the history of WWI this is well worth taking a couple of hours out of your life to see.

This was shown on the BBC at the weekend. Apparently it's available on the iPlayer for 7 days only....
