From the makers of "The Second World War in Colour" and "Britain at War in Colour", ITV1 comissioned a one off special to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the end of the Second World War in Europe.
Josh Ackland narrates this documentary made from letters, diaries and original colour film, bringing viewers closer to this historic events of V.E. Day than ever before. The programmes takes an in-depth look at events and experiences leading up to the end of the war, focusing on the personal stories of those involved, including not only the men in combat, but also the close friends and family back home.
Made from a combination of witness materials including emotive letters and diaries and an ever-expanding wealth of original colour footage from across the world. It provides an intimate, first hand account of the build up to victory in Europe and beyond to victory in the pacific. This, combined with original radio announcements; speeches and original colour newsreels of the time, will bring generations closer to the euphoria people felt as six years of suffering and endurance came to an end.
