Documentary Review

A Blog on Winston Churchill

They Shall Not Grow Old is an astonishing documentary. The familiar herky-jerky and often grainy scratched silent footage of the Western Front during the First World War has been entirely transformed by Peter Jackson in his film that was screened nationwide on December 17th and will be screened again on December 27th.
