Create, film and feature in your own mini-documentary.

IWM North is full of stories ranging from spies to bomb shelters, from refugees to ration books. Which stories will your family tell? Grab a filming pack and round up your film crew.

Documentary filmmakers at SMASH TV will guide you through the process to create your own documentary.

Afterwards, relive your day ‘on location’ by downloading your footage from SMASH TV to watch at home.


Documentary Challenge is available daily at 12.10pm, 2.10pm and 3.10pm. No booking necessary. Collect your filming packs from the Information Desk at IWM North.
