The Last War Heroes - Impossible Pictures for CHANNEL FOUR

We recently worked with Impossible pictures on their latest project "The Last War Heroes", a six part docu-drama for Britains Channel four.

Impossible productions have produced such titles as "Blitz Street", "Primeval" and "Walking with Giants - A Walking with Dinosaurs Special"

The Last War Heroes (working title) tells the epic story of the campaign that took the Allies from the biggest amphibious assault in history to ultimate victory over Nazi Germany that caused Hitler to commit suicide in his bunker in Berlin. We will learn what it was like to be in the boots of the men that were drafted in to fight for the survival of democracy and who had to face one of the most efficient fighting machines the world had ever seen. This isn’t the fictional Hollywood version – its hard reality – not only are the first hand experiences real, so are the bombs and munitions. This series will tell the personal stories of the men who fought their way across Europe. Theirs is a tale of vulnerability as well as strength, of overcoming fear, pitying the enemy, of loss and regret, but also moments of elation and will power that lead to victory.
Each hour chronologically picks a particular phase of the battle that was significant in the allied advance and zooms in on the details and personal experiences of those on the front line, the critical moments and decisions that epitomise the face of combat during the heat of battle. From Juno Beach on D-Day, the Lost Battalion at Hill 314, Sherman against Tiger tank battles, air attacks by spitfire and hurricane, the Bridge at Remagen, to the Reichstag in Berlin. The narrative of the campaign takes in the key, iconic moments of the fight for Europe.
Within this extra-ordinarily powerful historical backbone narrative, this series goes beyond the bombs of Blitz Street: It explores a huge diversity of experiences and challenges faced daily on the battle field – from clothing, to keeping healthy and clean, common ailments and injuries, food and drink, keeping weapons in working order and fighting in a variety of environments and weather. Using terrifying visualisations of real weapons we will witness real mines, incoming fire from machine guns and mortars, tanks battles and artillery, aerial strafing and bombing, from beachhead to river-crossing to forest to street fighting; it drives the story forward with powerful personal testimony from both sides of the Atlantic .

The Interview

The Interview

The History Bunker has been heavily involved in a new theatre production entitled "The Interview"

The Interview is a thought provoking play depicting a singular account of the Holocaust. Phillip Carter, an enthusiastic reporter arranges an interview with a holocaust survivor, Ms Ruben. His enthusiasm and personal crusade to show the world why the holocaust happened, is demolished once he comes face to face with Ms Ruben. The reporter transitions almost immediately from interviewer, to interviewee. Ms Ruben's firsthand account of Life in the holocaust quickly exposes the common naivety the reporter shows, a characteristic shared by the majority of modern people to date.

The play, through emotional flashbacks, cleverly stages the events of Ms Ruben's life. They demonstrate the happiness, loneliness, and the graphic violence endured by those people effected in Germany and the rest of Europe.

The intelligent script explores the reality of human ignorance, and force the question around humanity's dark capabilities.

The Play is sure to send you on a rollercoaster of emotions, and through its intellect will entice you to ask your own questions relevant to our world today.

The production opened at Dewsbury Town Hall and ran for a week and was very well received by audiences and reviewers alike. A second run is booked this time at Leeds Town Hall in June, further performances in Londons West End, Manchester and Birmingham are also planned.

World premiere of new play in Huddersfield - This taut, gripping drama is a moving and powerful celebration of life, hope and love. Critically acclaimed, inspirational Full Body & The Voice is at Lawrence Batley Theatre, Huddersfield with world premiere of it's latest production HYPOTHERMIA 3rd till 6th February. Dark, funny, poignant and compelling by turns this thrilling play has a unique physical style and is a piece of new and original writing by FB&TV's Artistic Director Vanessa Brooks.

Based on fact during a period when 'mercy killing' served as a cloak for the mass murder of people with disabilities HYPOTHERMIA asks how far removed we are now from making judgements about the worth of humanity and whether a reluctance to take action and fight prejudice could result in similar acts happening again.
