THE WAR
Easter Sunday from 13:30 and Easter Monday from 14:05

Produced and directed by Ken Burns and Lynn Novick, this acclaimed award-winning multi-part documentary series chronicles the Second World War from an American viewpoint.

Spanning the European, African and Pacific theatres, it draws on personal accounts from the citizens of four US towns, with actors including Tom Hanks and Samuel L. Jackson giving voice to contemporary newspaper articles, telegrams and letters from the front to bring home the often harrowing human cost of warfare.

From the December 1941 attack on Pearl Harbor through to eventual victory over Nazi Germany and Imperial Japan in 1945, THE WAR examines the impact of the global conflagration at a grass-roots level upon individuals, families and communities.
