Trip to The British Film Institute

Using state-of-the-art technology and materials from the BBC and Imperial War Museum, filmmaker Peter Jackson allows the story of World War I to be told by the men who were there. Life on the front is explored through the voices of the soldiers, who discuss their feelings about the conflict, the food they ate, the friends they made and their dreams of the future.

Year 10 and 11 history students visited BFI Southbank in London for the Youth Premiere of ‘They Shall Not Grow Old’. The movie gave students a better insight of the life of a soldier during World War 1, thanks to original footage being re-created with colour. Adrees Anjum
