Bullets, Bombs and Bridges: The Story of the War Film


BBC TWO, Saturday September 1, 9pm

Play Now


This week's episode in BBC TWO's series on the history of British Film looks at a genre we have virtually made our own, the War film. British cinema owes much to the invention and bravery of the film makers of war - men like Humphrey Jennings, Powell & Pressburger and David Lean - and many of our greatest stars made their names in war movies.

Featuring original interviews with Lord Attenborough, Richard Todd, Sir Michael Caine, Hayley Mills, Paul Greengrass, John Boorman and Sir Anthony Hopkins.
