Work of genius criminally still unavailable nearly 50 years after 1st broadcast.
8 September 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

My own experiences echo the other users, baby boomers like myself. I was a month short of 9 years old in 1961 when this 1st arrived on our screens. I was hooked forever, and I was mesmerised from day 1. It lit an abiding interest in the study of that conflict and an abiding deep deep respect and gratitude for all the allied combatants.

The wonderful sweeping and majestic signature tune and incidental music that pervades throughout the individual episodes holds you in it's grip. Once heard, NEVER forgotten. Add to the mix, the hours of wonderful archive film, the unsurpassable Narration by Gary Merrill and also the impeccable readings from Churchill himself by Richard Burton.

This production comes as near as possible to perfect. So the next question is why this international treasure has never been made publicly available? Who thinks they have the right to deny us, why can't they get their act together and sort out the red tape and just get it out there so we can watch it again at least one more time before we die!! What are they waiting for??
