History comes to life!!
23 April 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

There has never been a television production that has been able to capture the desperation of a Nation faced with extinction as well as "Finest Hour" does. There is an episode of the old "World at War" series entitled "alone", which attempts to portray the the significance of the Battle of Britain in a one-hour segment. Of course, this is inadequate, although it does manage to capture interviews with many of the pilots and civilians who lived through it, along with historical footage. "Finest Hour" takes this basic format many steps further. It not only manages to contain many contemporary interviews with people who were involved and are likely in their eighties now, but it combines historical footage with contemporary footage of the places and things of the time. It gives the viewer/listener a real flavor for the experience of living through the summer of 1940 by showing you the world as it actually appeared to these people at the time. An absolutely fascinating production that no history buff or anglophile should be without.
