VE DAY: THE LOST FILMS
The story of VE Day in 1945, told through the eyewitness accounts and cine films of ordinary people. Rarely seen before footage, shot by amateurs and stored away for decades, charts an extraordinary day when the entire nation took to the streets. Through the eyes of the people who were there, we see what happened across the country when peace was finally declared. It was a day of grief and optimism, celebration and loss. Every one had their own story to tell and their own war to come to terms with on a day that brought a nation together like never before.
