Voices included in They Shall Not Grow Old film

Oscar-winning filmmaker Peter Jackson has transformed First World War footage from Imperial War Museums’ extensive archive using modern production techniques for his film They Shall Not Grow Old. Combining the footage with interviews conducted by IWM and the BBC, the film tells the story of what it was like to be a soldier during the war – from what they ate and wore to what it was like to participate in battles and tend to the wounded. The voices of individuals included in this Community are featured in the film.
