The First World War: Life on the Home Front in North West England, Manchester Central Library
In this screening for Archives+ First World War week, the North West Film Archive will show a new film which draws on compelling footage of life on the home front in North West England. The film includes footage of the Accrington Pals, the Lancashire Fusiliers and the Cheshire Regiment as they prepare for active service on the Western Front. We discover the early days of aviation, and German Prisoners of War being marched through the streets of Lancashire. We move from troop inspections in Preston and Blackpool, to the subsequent victory parades in Whalley and Haslingden and the unveiling of war memorials from Egremont to Altrincham. Presenting evocative footage filmed across the North West a century ago, this is an opportunity to see how we lived our lives during one of the darkest periods of our history. The film is now available for purchase on DVD.
