The World at War

Essential vieweing back in the'70s when it first aired and now the Yesterday channel is showing them all back to back. They should make it compulsory viewing in  schools, utterly compelling. Seeing it again has reinforced how we (the human race) are only a whisker away from repeating it. The parallels are frightening, the rhetoric, nationalism, propaganda, manipulation of democracy, polarising of people, power struggles, all seem disturbingly similar.
What a series though.

They should also make it compulsory viewing for the mandarins in Whitehall.

And, for that matter, any politician or potential politician, certainly in what we call the western world

I remember tuning in to regularly watch it ages ago. Harrowing but enthralling.

Didn't it used to be either on just before or just after The Big Match?

One of the few "proper" adult shows I remember watching as a nipper - probably waiting to see Clarkey score a goal.

Been watching it over Christmas. Utterly brilliant. I guess it must have been made early sixties. A bit of history in itself.

Mid to late 60's, also remember it as a kid.

Watched the genocide one last night. Even though they had clearly cut out some of the original footage it actually gave me nightmares.

"The genocide one". Ace!

"FFS Julie, that kettle must've boiled be now. Hurry up or you'll miss the mindless anihalation of millions in the most horrifying era of human history from the last century. And it's in HD!!!!!! And bring those Jaffa Cakes. What was that? Fuckinelldyer mean "No Jaffa Cakes"? Bourbons? Fucking Bourbons! Give me fucking strength woman! Go on then, just two. But hurry up or you'll miss the liquidation of the Warsaw ghetto! I love war me!"

Imagine all the extras they must've hired.

I should probably take sone time to rewatch some of them if at possible - a reality check and all that.

* Some Jaffa cakes would be good though.....

I could send you some over. Or has that nutter president put an embargo on them?

Funnily enough i did get the choccy biscuits out for the skirmish around Stalingrad

They're not strictly Jaffa Cakes, but there are some things made by a company called Pimms (or Pims) that are sold in the local grocery store (which also stocks Marmite, proper baked beans, digestives (dark, milk and plain) and Rich Tea biccies) that taste almost the same.

Fighting for our right to munch proper biscuits.

It's what the war was all about.

Otherwise, we'd be eating Nutella-filled Bourbons.

They used to, along with Flakes, but I've not seen either of late.
