LIVING HISTORY - Bomber Boys The Fighting Lancaster

Using a unique blend of living history elements, CGI, first-person interviews and never-before-seen WWII footage, this dramatic four-part documentary series follows a new generation of young men - all of whom are descendants of WWII veterans - as they undergo training to become a Lancaster aircrew.

While these new recruits struggle to come to terms with 1940s discipline and values, we hear the harrowing anecdotes of the "real" Bomber Boys - the veterans who flew into the night skies over Occupied Europe to fight in some of the most critical battles of the war.

As the two groups come together, a special bond emerges, building a bridge between the generations and giving new understanding to the experiences of those who fought in the Second World War

LIVING HISTORY - The Devil's Brigade TV Series

In 1942, an elite group of over six hundred Canadian soldiers were trained to create a lethal battalion that would, along with their American counterparts, parachute behind German lines and wreak havoc upon the enemy. DEVIL'S BRIGADE is a compelling four-part series that chronicles the journey of 15 present-day Canadian and U.S. soldiers as they are taken back in time to face the grueling training and hardship the original Devil's Brigade endured at their training post in Helena, Montana.

The present day experiences of these young soldiers are inter-cut with first-person interviews with Devil's Brigade veterans and compelling archival footage. Devil's Brigade remembers and pays tribute to this elite group of soldiers who regularly achieved what most called the impossible during the darkest days of the Second World War.
