Fires Were Started
1943 / 63m - UK
The first half hour feels incredibly staged (which it was) and fake (which clearly wasn't the goal). The second part introduces some much-needed dramatic tension and is a bit more demanding, but overall this is a pretty dull feature that does little justice to the work and the many sacrifices these people had to make.
A Diary for Timothy
1945 / 40m - UK
A very bland and lifeless doc on WWII, as seen from the British home front, linked to the birth of a young boy. It might have been more interesting in its time, but I've seen so many WWII now that there's hardly anything of interest here. Not only that, the structure of the documentary makes it unnecessarily cheesy.
