Variety Acts And Turns Of The Second World War
Over 2 + 1/2 hours of the performances and songs sung by the populist, morale boosting variety acts and singers of the Second World War. Artists who
helped the frontline troops and home front civilians alike to 'Keep Smiling Through' the
dark days of war.
Featuring balancing acts, strongmen, comedians, musicians and singers including Flanagan & Allen, Gracie Fields, Robb Wilton, Sydney Burchall, Tommy Trinder, Peter Sinclair, Vera Lynn, Max Wall, Joe Loss, Cyril Fletcher, Tommy Handley and Mantovani among many, many more!
This release also celebrates the wartime work of ENSA - the 'Entertainments National
Service Association' - set up in 1939 to provide entertainment for British armed service
personnel throughout the war. ENSA endearingly became known by the troops as 'Every
Night Something Awful!'
First released: Monday 3rd October 2011
If ordering from a UK store, please note that you are in Region 1 (DVD)/Region A (Blu-ray), whilst the UK is in Region 2/B, respectively. This means that many - but by no means all - may fail to play. Look for products marked "Region free", "All regions", "Region 0" or "Multi-region". Blu-rays may also be marked "Region A/B/C", or variations thereof. You may also check whether your DVD/Blu-ray player supports multi-region playback (also referred to as "region free"), or whether it can be set to do so. There should, of course, be no problems with books, CDs, or other physical items.
