Humphrey Jennings, widely considered as one of Britain's greatest documentary filmmakers, is best known for films which beautifully evoke everyday heroism in times of war and peace, combining poetic observation with a subtle yet intense national feeling. This, the first of three volumes, gathers 15 films from the period 1934-1940 and provides a fascinating insight into Jennings early days as a filmmaker learning and developing his craft. It features the critically acclaimed Spare Time and London Can Take It! as well as some previously neglected works, many of which will be available for the first time since their original release.
