London Can Take It DVD

This collection features seven different Second World War films about life in London from the outbreak of war through the Blitz to the V-Bomb menace.
LONDON CAN TAKE IT (1940) This celebrated film, co-directed by Humphrey Jennings, was aimed at American audiences, with reporter Quentin Reynolds praising the courage and resilience of Londoners during the Blitz. THE FIRST DAYS (1939) A quiet portrait of London, as citizens brace themselves for the onslaught of war. NEIGHBOURS UNDER FIRE (1940) This inspiring short film, shows Londoners rallying around to help one another during the fury of the Blitz, when 1200 people found themselves homeless overnight. CHRISTMAS UNDER FIRE (1941) A moving and vivid portrait of Christmas 1940, when Londoners swapped the intimacy of the fireside for shelter in the capital's tube stations. ORDINARY PEOPLE (1942) A day in the life of ordinary Londoners, trying to get on with their lives and contribute to the war effort and waiting for the air raid sirens to sound again. LONDON SCRAPBOOK (1942) Bessie Love, Basil Radford and Leslie Mitchell star in this vivid portrait of London at war, intended for American audiences to help them appreciate the experience of living in a war-torn city. SECOND BATTLE OF LONDON (1944) A tribute to the work of Anti-Aircraft Command under General Sir Frederick Pile in defending London against waves of German V-1 Flying Bombs.
