Jennings' work, especially in the London sequences,
is truly inspired. It is also, of course, a superb historical record.
A must for documentary enthusiasts.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GOLD NUGGET, 16 Feb. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I had never heard of Humphrey Jennings until very recently while watching a documentary called The Story of Film. In it there was a brief glimpse of a wartime concert by Dame Myra Hess with the Queen Mum in the audience plus other cuts from Jennings' glowing black and white coverage of England during the war.

Now that I have the Collection I can really appreciate Jennings' artistry. The key attraction is that it's the people of England themselves, not actors, who tell the story at the very moment it is happening.
