National Archive WW2 videocasts

From the National Archives at Kew:

To celebrate the 70th anniversary of the Second World War, we have created a series of six videocasts entitled
'War on Film'. These describe key events that inspired popular war films, using extracts from real government records and archive footage.

Discover the real stories behind films such as 'The Dam Busters' and 'The Longest Day', as retold by our military records specialist William Spencer.

The first videocast looks at the Blitz and the evacuation of children from large cities, as shown in the film 'Hope and Glory'. Watch it now.

P.S. We're releasing a new videocast each week until 8 October 2009, so sign up to our RSS feed.
