An extraordinary look at the soldiers and events of the Great War directed by Peter Jackson.

Combining state-of-the-art technology and award-winning director Peter Jackson’s trademark painstaking methods of restoring and colouring archival war footage, They Shall Not Grow Old takes an extraordinary look at the soldiers and events of the Great War. Using original footage from Imperial War Museums’ extensive archive, much of it previously unseen, alongside BBC and IWM interviews with servicemen who fought in the conflict, now presented as the world has never seen. An intensely gripping, immersive and poignant experience through the eyes and voices of the British soldiers who lived it.
