War Stories

Uncovering forgotten gems like Frieda and revisiting classics like Ice Cold in Alex, an exploration into how war films have changed with the times. They were a tool of government propaganda during WW2, and while the blockbusters of the 1950s were part of national nostalgia, today they have been rediscovered and become celebrated icons of British culture.
