World War II – The British Movietone Newsreel Years Collector’s Edition DVD

Founded in 1929, British Movietone was the first sound newsreel service in Britain, shooting on 35 mm film and keeping the country up to date with current affairs before the age of television.  To celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War II, OEG Classic Movies is delighted to announce the first ever DVD release on 7 September 2015 of the World War II – The British Movietone Newsreel Years Collector’s Edition a major collection of war reports from 1939 – 1945.

Hungry for news during World War II, people flocked to cinemas to watch news reports. Despite a shortage in film supplies, British Movietone News covered the war from the home front to overseas: from the Western Front and Occupied Paris to Africa, the Middle East and the Pacific, and featured footage of Winston Churchill, Adolf Hitler, Montgomery, Mussolini, George Formby, Gracie Fields, and many others who affected the outcome of this Second World War.

Covering over sixteen hours of World War II footage, much of it unseen since the war, World War II – The British Movietone Newsreel Years Collector’s Edition is a fascinating and insightful look back at this major historical event.

Many of these news reels have been newly remastered and are now brought together as a stunning special edition six-disc box set; which is a testament of British spirit and humour, and will be released on 7 September 2015.
