Rare film from the Home Front in Britain and Germany at the Palace - The Redditch Standard

Rare film from the Home Front in Britain and Germany at the Palace

Redditch Editorial 30th Oct, 2019   0

DISCOVER the Lost Films of World War Two at a special evening in the Studio at the Palace Theatre next Friday, November 8.

David Parker is a television programme maker and he will be giving an illustrated talk using rare film archive material to illustrate the trials and tribulations faced by both the British and Germans on the Home Front during the Second World War.

From the outbreak of war in 1939 to its bitter conclusion in 1945 a few men and women in Britain and Germany, managed to film war as it came to their cities, towns and villages.

Some soldiers took their film cameras to the battle front, and captured the horror of war as it unfolded before their eyes.

Others captured the nightmare of the Blitz, and the hardships of bombing.

David spent years collecting these films, many forgotten for decades, and will use clips (some of them, even years later, distressing to watch) to reveal war as it was seen through the film cameras of ordinary men and women caught up in the most extraordinary times.
