never to be forgotten
23 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Television in the 1950s was full of WW2 documentaries. Growing up in that decade, I do not remember learning about most of the major events of that war for the first time--I saw so many of these documentaries that I always seemed to know them.

The Valiant Years was one of the last and one of the very best. I must have been 10 years old when it was broadcast in the US, but I have never forgotten it. Every few years, I check to see if it is available here or from the UK, but it never is, which is a great shame.

I wonder if it is even preserved somewhere in the original film format? Does anyone know? Does anyone know who owns the rights? I recall that it was a joint production of the BBC and ABC (American).
