The story of life in Britain during World War II. Home Front Britain is a showcase six-part documentary series produced by Discovery Channel in association with the British Film Institute. It tells the story of World War II on the Home Front through a rare collection of Ministry of Information wartime films. Presented by the much loved actor Jim Carter (Red Ridings, Cranford, Shakespeare In Love) each episode takes the viewer through the films whilst providing historical context anecdotes and wartime information. In addition Jim travels to some of the famous British landmarks which featured in these films and which became synonymous with the Home Front war effort. Home Front Britain is a fascinating, informative and nostalgic blend of Ministry of Information films interwoven with Jim Carter's guiding commentary and is a truly timeless historical insight which provides a unique opportunity to enjoy some of the most treasured gems in the nation's cultural archives.
