Series examining the history of British film. The war film is a genre Britain has virtually made its own. As well as citing classics the Dam Busters, In Which We Serve and The Colditz Story, the programme looks at more recent films. United 93, released in 2006, portrays the events in America on 11th September 2001 and is a British film by a British director, the latest in a long line of revealing yet gritty films about war that stretches right back to the groundbreaking the Battle of the Somme. Featuring original interviews with Lord Attenborough, Richard Todd, Sir Michael Caine, Hayley Mills, Paul Greengrass, John Boorman and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
