My Grandparents’ War
A new Channel 4 documentary series to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the start of World War Two.
Helena Bonham Carter, Mark Rylance, Kristin Scott Thomas and Carey Mulligan explore their grandparents’ extraordinary wartime stories.
The actors find out exactly what their relatives did during the six years of global conflict. While each episode is authored by a celebrity, they are not purely about their own grandparents’ experiences. Instead, they shed light on a specific chapter of the war.
My Grandparents War is airing on Channel 4 at 9pm on Wednesday 27th November and runs for 4 weeks. It was produced by Wild Pictures in association with Taphae Productions.
