  • Improve wellbeing and connectivity by funding our volunteer programme



This video shows how IWM’s extensive film footage was brought to the big screen for the transformative documentary directed by Peter Jackson. The result changed the way we see the First World War. Your purchase helps ensure we can preserve our collections for future generations and use them to educate and inspire in new and innovative ways.
