Widely considered to be one of Britain's greatest filmmakers, Humphrey Jennings has long been celebrated as the director of works which beautifully capture the everyday heroism in times of war and peace. This, the first of three volumes which collect together Jennings entire output, gathers 14 films from 1934 1940 and provides a fascinating insight into his early days as a filmmaker learning and developing his craft. It features the critically acclaimed Spare time and the rousing London Can Take It!, as well as some previously neglected works and alternative versions, many of which are made available for the first time since their original release.
