1. They Shall Not Grow Old (15) – 7.30pm, w talk at 7.15, The White Swan [INDOORS]

Using ground breaking computer restoration technology, Peter Jackson and his team have created a moving, real-life depiction of the Great War of 1914-18 in restored, realistic colour. The footage came from the archives of the Imperial War Museum in London and the voiceovers the audience hears are those of men who fought in the conflict and which are taken from the IWM and BBC archives. This is an intensely moving and evocative piece of film-making.

At 19.15 hrs, before the film screening, we will have an introduction and Q&A from renowned battlefield guide, author and military historian Clive Harris. He will give his thoughts on the documentary and how, as a former soldier, it affected his views on the Great War. Clive will also be happy to answer questions from the audience.
