Synopsis:
The Second World War has mainly been seen in black and white, but recent research has unearthed an abundance of superb colour film and shows what it really looked like to those who were there.
'Britain at War in Colour' is a stunning and vivid new account of Britain during World War II and covers the events that happened on the Home Front between the years of 1934 and 1945. It tells the remarkable story of Britain's involvement in the Second World War using much previously unseen colour film footage, letters and diaries of the people who lived through this unforgettable period in British history.
Narrated by John Thaw, 'Britain at War in Colour' portrays the bloody conflict of the most cataclysmic event in recent history. It includes colour film of Winston Churchill before the 1945 election, British prisoners of war at a liberated prison camp in Burma and spectacular footage of the D-Day landings. Brilliant colour footage is also featured of a Royal visit to Warrington, of the Hampshire Regiment at their training camp at Seaford in Sussex in 1934 and of Oswald Mosley's Blackshirts marching along London's Embankment in 1940.
