Five Came Back

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 1:37 pm on 18 April 2017

Dan Slevin, RNZ's film guy, discusses the new Netflix documentary series Five Came Back, the story of five great directors from Hollywood’s golden age who volunteered to serve in WWII as documentary makers, the films they made and the effect of their service - what they saw and experienced - on their later films.

The directors are John Ford, Frank Capra, William Wyler, John Huston and - the biggest surprise to me - George Stevens who was at D-Day as well as being with the first troops to liberate the Dachau concentration camp.
