Michael Palin WW1 Collection: The Wipers Times & The Day of WW1
£13.99  

THE WPERS TIMES - In the bombed-out ruins of Ypres in 1916 Captain Fred Roberts and Lieutenant Jack Pearson discovered a printing press. They used it to produce The Wipers Times – a humorous satirical and subversive trench newspaper which proved hugely popular with soldiers - though not entirely with their superior officers. Braving constant bombardment and bitter fighting The Wipers Times survived the Somme and made it through to the end of the war. Roberts and Pearson were highly decorated - yet were unrecognised in their lifetime. The Wipers Times is a story of the extraordinary resilience of the human spirit in the face of overwhelming adversity. The Wipers Times stars Ben Chaplin (London Boulevard Me and Orson Welles The New World) Julian Rhind-Tutt (The Hour Green Wing) Michael Palin (Monty Python and the Holy Grail Life Of Brian) Steve Oram (Sightseers Kill List) and Emilia Fox (Silent Witness Merlin) and is directed by Andy de Emmony (Love Bite West Is West The Bletchley Circle) produced by David Parfitt (My Week with Marilyn Parades End Shakespeare In Love) and written by Ian Hislop (A Bunch of Amateurs My Dads The Prime Minister) and Nick Newman. THE LAST DAY OF WW1 - WW1 - the war in which 9 million soldiers died. This was a truly global conflict and meant to be “the war to end all wars”. In the documentary Michael Palin travels to the old battlefields in France and Belgium to see the places where American British French Canadian and German troops were fighting as the war came to an end at 11am on 11th November 1918.Michael counts down the last hours of WWI and questions the estimated 11 000 casualties which occurred that day; many in the hours after the Armistice had actually been signed. He tells the stories of the last soldiers of each nationality to be killed in the final minutes leading up to the 11 o’clock cease-fire. Using newly discovered photographs and original research never before seen on television using contemporary film archive newspapers and state of the art graphics this film tells the explosive story of the final day of World War One. He discovers the terrible truth that in those final 6 hours - essentially on that last morning - the killing continued. The Commonwealth War Graves Commission alone records 863 British and Commonwealth deaths for 11/11/18. One historian estimates that over 11 000 soldiers on all sides were killed wounded or were missing on the final day of the war. This is a higher figure than D-Day in WWII when the allies were fighting a just cause to liberate Europe from the Nazis as opposed to the final day of WW1 when the war was over. How could killing on this scale ever be justified?
