More than 35 years after its initial broadcast, THE WORLD AT WAR remains the definitive visual history of World War II. Unsurpassed in depth and scope, its 26 hour-long programs feature an extraordinary collection of newsreel, propaganda, and home-movie footage drawn from the archives of 18 nations, including color close-ups of Adolf Hitler taken by his mistress, that present an unvarnished perspective of the war’s pivotal events. Penetrating interviews with eyewitness participants—from Hitler’s secretary to Alger Hiss to ordinary citizens who stood outside the battle lines—add spine-tingling, first-hand accounts to an already unforgettable viewing experience. And, this November, A&E Home Entertainment unveils this incomparable WWII documentary series, painstakingly restored and remastered in 1080p high-definition (with newly-created 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio tracks) for THE WORLD AT WAR BLU-RAY – truly epic history at its very best.
Informative, unbiased and narrated by Academy Award® winner Laurence Olivier, THE WORLD AT WAR BLU-RAY is a visually arresting edition featuring over 12 hours of bonus materials and new features, with all 30 hours of programming masterfully restored and refreshed from the original source materials for the most optimal viewing experience yet. The program is also the recipient of numerous accolades, including an International Emmy® Award, The National Television Critics’ Award for Best Documentary, and knighthood for its creator, Sir Jeremy Isaacs.
