DVD The First World War

Life on the Home Front in North West England

Drawing on rare archive footage we feature amongst others, the Accrington Pals, the Lancashire Fusiliers and the Cheshire Regiment as they prepare for active service on the Western Front.

We discover the early days of aviation and German Prisoners of War being marched through the streets of Lancashire. From troop inspections in Preston and Blackpool, to the subsequent victory parades in Whalley and Haslingden and the unveiling of war memorials from Egremont to Altrincham.

Presenting evocative footage filmed across the North West a century ago - don't miss the special opportunity to experience how we lived our lives during one of the darkest periods in our history.

From industrial toil in the years leading up to the outbreak of war, to key events during the hostilities - join BAFTA nominated actor Maxine Peake as she narrates this fascinating journey into the past.
