Description
The World at War was first broadcast 31st October 1973, when memories of the Second World War were still clear in people's minds and the war's veterans numerous. This unique television series was able to assemble these recollections, together with archive footage into one of the most powerful and successful historical documentaries ever seen. The voices of those that fought, worked or watched during the Second World War gave each episode a vivid sense of what it was like to be there and was the hallmark of the series.
Over 30 years on, the series is still widely acknowledged to be the definitive history of the Second World War - the best of its kind.

This 35 1/2 hour 11 disco box set contains;
- Original 26 Episodes.
- 8 Special Presentations.
- 3 hour 30th Anniversary Disc containing previously unseen interviews and retrospective interviews with the original production team.

Already own it but would recommend it anyway-at this price it's a real bargain.
Voted hot.

Terrible price ! but still a good deal if youknow what i mean....
Such history should be (and probably is) in the public domain. There should be absolutely NO profiteering of the events when so many people lost their lives and the rest had to endure such unthinkable hardships. This material should be made freely available from all European countries so that the following generations don't make the same mistakes.
I'm not criticizing the actual product which is absolutely brilliant, but not in a commercial way.

This is possibly the most absurd comment I've ever read on here. You can't surely be saying that a privately produced set of documentaries should be given away for free? That's madness

I'm not a Nazi, I'm just not retarded. If you gave no incentive in terms of profits then these documentaries wouldn't get made in the first place. Going along your line of thought all food should be free so we don't then disrespect all those who died in various famines in the past. Goons

It was a World War not just a European War, and the mistakes were made at the end of the First World War with the stupidity of the armistice terms :roll:

This should be used in every school as it gives the most amazing lesson on war but free? No. Amazing price!

This was produced over 30 years ago and has no doubt earned the producers profits in the thousands of percentage points.

Shouldnt be free but profits should no longer be made on it imho.

Should be compulsory viewing for all school children of 15+ but doubt the PC brigade would allow it

I don't think the producers were in it for a profit.

If memory serves right, they wanted the programmes made while some of the main players were still alive ... Anthony Eden, Lord Home, Albert Speer to name but three ... plus a cast of hundreds of ordinary folk.

And it was the ordinary folk whose testimony was the most moving, for me anyway, cos before the World at War we hadn't heard much from the ones who'd been bombed in the Blitz or who had to live in Nazi occupied Europe. History before this documentary only seemed to affect the top nobs, not plebs like us. That's what made this series so different.

I remember when it came out on TV first time round, must've been early 70's sometimes. Just about everyone watched it, but I was banned from watching the episodes about Auschwitz & Hiroshima. And because I started asking so many questions about the death camps, Mum & Dad took me to visit an old guy who lived a few miles away, he'd lost his hand clearing munitions which had been dumped near Belsen. And he'd seen that camp a few days after its liberation, the piles of corpses everywhere, the walking dead (his words). Even though it's thirty odd years ago I can still remember him, with this weird hook thing he had for a hand. And through listening to him, I know the Holocaust really happened, that the Fred Leuchter's of this world are talking through their hats.

Anyway. Brilliant deal, great price.

If there were no profits to be made on it then no one would sell it!!!!! Who's going to stock an item, take up warehouse and shelf space and then give it away for free?! There are inherit costs in making, producing and selling such items that mean unless its government subsidised will always cost something. £17.95 for hours and hours of footage on something like 20+ discs isn't exactly making them a massive profit.

Also why do you think it should be shown in schools? Do you not already think they learn about this kind of stuff? You know in schools they actually have books they learn from as oppose to watching T.V documentaries. Not that I have anything bad to say about this series as its very well done but can people please stop ranting (myself included) about the fact it should be free - it was actually given away free by a certain newspaper not so long ago anyway and is always on T.V so its not exactly unavailable to people

please learn this - nothing is free in my whole life
