Apocalypse: The Second World War (2009)

Kids?:No
Rating:TV-14
Apocalypse tells the story of WWII by using provocative footage taken by amateur filmmakers, declassified Top Secret footage and newsreel footage that was not used at the time. This rediscovered footage has been colourised to give viewers a sense of what it was like to experience the war first hand. The strength of the series lies in the attempt to tell the story of WWII in a new way, using atypical footage in a way that audiences have never seen before. For example: episode 2 includes footage of French school children in a little village near the Ardennes. It's their last day of school before the village is abandoned and the Germans storm through. Then, viewers see footage of the same abandoned classroom - eerily emptied of its students. This kind of footage provides a civilian or "real life" perspective of the war.
