VE Day – Home Front Film

To commemorate the 75th anniversary of V.E. Day, we were delighted to partner with Digital Drama to create a new short film using little seen WW2 archive footage from London’s Screen Archives.

Supported by a grant of £59,900 from the National Lottery Heritage Fund, Digital Drama trained 35 volunteers across London to deliver reminiscence and recording workshops to gather the memories of 90 older residents  in 6 London boroughs of Camden, Ealing, Hounslow, Kingston, Croydon and Merton. Working with the Heritage and Archive departments of these 6 boroughs, Digital Drama have edited WW2 childhood memories together with the archive footage to create a film for VE/VJ Day.
