COASTAL COMMAND - RAF , WWII , Ralph Vaughan Williams 81520
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Dec 31, 2012
Coastal Command is a 1942 British film made by the Crown Film Unit for the Ministry of Information. The movie, distributed by RKO, dramatised the work of RAF Coastal Command. It was made under the supervision of Ian Dalrymple, with the full cooperation of the Royal Air Force and the Royal Navy. The participants of the movie were active RAF officers, NCOs and aircrew, and RN officers, and included pilot Roger Hunter and Flight Sergeant Charles Norman Lewis; the latter of whom was killed in World War II. The performances were generally well received. Coastal Command is notable for its score by Ralph Vaughan Williams. Coastal Command is a documentary-style account of the Shorts Sunderland and PBY Catalina flying boats during the Battle of the Atlantic. The film includes real footage of attacks on a major enemy ship by Hudson and Halifax bombers based in Iceland. Later, the film depicts a routine sea patrol, in which a Sunderland flying boat flies over a convoy and bombs a German U-boat. Two versions of the film were made, one featuring an explanatory voice-over. In this version, the film ends with a combined air attack on an enemy cruiser caught away from its base. The Sunderland's crew returns to England, mission accomplished, and with a wounded crew member in stable condition. In the second, slightly longer version of the film, the Sunderland crew returns home after the successful attack on the cruiser, and the wounded crew member is hospitalized. After a visit to the hospital, the film ends as the Sunderland crew is informed they will be re-deployed to West Africa, to begin a new mission.

My Friend The Mercenary (Failed Coup Documentary) - Real Stories

Film maker James Brabazon should be locked up in a Zimbabwe prison - and if he hadn't had to go to a family funeral, that's where he would be right now, because he had been chosen to be the official film maker of the disastrous attempted coup in Equatorial Guinea. James was invited into the adventure by his old friend and bodyguard Nick du Toit, who introduced him to old Etonian Simon Mann. Nick invited James to a top secret rendezvous in a village near Paris to meet Simon and cut him in on the deal. Then James' granddad died, and he was out of the loop the week the coup kicked off.

As his friend faces thirty four years in the worst jail in Africa, and Simon Mann languishes in prison in Zimbabwe, James travels to some of the most dangerous places in Africa to find out why the coup went so disastrously wrong, why Nick got involved in the first place, and who was really behind it.

NAVY LOG TV SHOW EPISODE "THE PENTAGON STORY" KOREAN WAR 86094
PeriscopeFilm



Published on Jul 1, 2018
This episode of "Navy Log" was first aired on December 6th, 1955, and its titled "The Pentagon Story".

This episode summarizes the Pentagon’s search and investigation into the actions of Lt. (j.g.) John Kelvin Koelsch, during the Korean War, which led to him receiving, posthumously, the Congressional Medal of Honor. He was the first helicopter pilot to be awarded the Medal of Honor. The story is based upon detail uncovered by the Pentagon and all names are the actual names of the personnel involved in Koelsch’ saga. What follows is an edited version of the description attached to his medal. “For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with a Navy helicopter rescue unit. … Up to the time of his death while still a captive of the enemy, Lt. (j.g.) Koelsch steadfastly refused to aid his captors in any manner and served to inspire his fellow prisoners by his fortitude and consideration for others. His great personal valor and heroic spirit of self-sacrifice throughout sustain and enhance the finest traditions of the U.S. Naval Service.”
________________________________________________________________

Did you know: Lt j.g. John Kevlin Koelsch was one of only seven U.S. Naval personnel who received the Congressional Medal of Honor during the Korean Conflict (1950 – 1953).

Lieutenant (jg) Koelsch's official citation reads:

For conspicuous gallantry and intrepidity at the risk of his life above and beyond the call of duty while serving with a Navy helicopter rescue unit in North Korea on 3 July 1951. Although darkness was rapidly approaching when information was received that a Marine aviator had been shot down and was trapped by the enemy in mountainous terrain deep in hostile territory, Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Koelsch voluntarily flew a helicopter to the reported position of the downed airman in an attempt to effect a rescue. With an almost solid overcast concealing everything below the mountain peaks, he descended in his unarmed and vulnerable aircraft without the accompanying fighter escort to an extremely low altitude beneath the cloud level and began a systematic search. Despite the increasingly intense enemy fire, which struck his helicopter on one occasion, he persisted in his mission until he succeeded in locating the downed pilot, who was suffering from serious burns on the arms and legs. While the victim was being hoisted into the aircraft, it was struck again by an accurate burst of hostile fire and crashed on the side of the mountain. Quickly extricating his crewmen and the aviator from the wreckage, Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Koelsch led them from the vicinity in an effort to escape from hostile troops, evading the enemy forces for 9 days and rendering such medical attention as possible to his severely burned companion until all were captured. Up to the time of his death while still a captive of the enemy, Lieutenant (Junior Grade) Koelsch steadfastly refused to aid his captors in any manner and served to inspire his fellow prisoners by his fortitude and consideration for others. His great personal valor and heroic spirit of self-sacrifice throughout sustain and enhance the finest traditions of the United States naval service.

The Fighting AAF show - Post-Hiroshima bombing
PhilaVideo


Published on Jul 15, 2018
The Fighting AAF show - Program #21. Seems to have been produced 48 hours after the bombing of Hiroshima (August 6, 1945) and apparently prior to the Nagasaki bombing (August 9 1945). This program has also been dated August 19, 1945 and this was probably the actual air date. Interview of Enola Gay crew commander Colonel Tibbet and Brigadier General Thomas. The first tune is, "Great Day." From the Marianas: more news about the atomic bomb. From Guam: meet the flight engineer of a B-29 crew. From Tinian: How "our boys" live away from combat. From New York: a salute to an AAF hero. The series was noted for its early use of wire recorders in the field. "For forty-eight hours the world has waited breathlessly for news that would bring an end to World War 2. One of the decisive factors, which brought us to the threshold of peace, was the use of the atomic bomb. This week the world viewed with mixed apprehension and hopes the dawn of a new scientific era. The atomic bomb was not unleashed with any surge of elation or glory but in the words of president Truman it was used in order to shorten the agony of war to save the lives of thousands of young Americans. For an interview with the army airmen who dropped the first atomic bomb on Japan here is our AAF reporter..."

Pirate Hunting - Operation Atalanta in the Indian Ocean (Documentary, 2010)
wocomoDOCS


Published on Jun 2, 2018
Film starts at 0:11. How much do we really want to get rid of Somali piracy? Several strong stories from the world of piracy give a new and unique perspective on this issue. Flimmer Film AS has exclusively managed to operate as embedded filmmakers on board the KNM Fritjof Nansen during the three first weeks of their six months mission.

© 2010, Licensed by First Hand Films

This synopsis is written while on board, after having had three encounters with Somali pirates, and several interceptions of suspected skiffs. This is uniquely frequent compared to all other military vessels in the EU and NATO forces in the Bay of Aden. We have also acquired exclusive rights to rare footage from a hostage situation. The well known pirate incident on the Russian MV Faina was filmed with a hidden mobile phone, smuggled in by one of the crew members’ underwear.
Piracy is big scale theft, but when risk hits one of the aortas of world shipping, the Somalian pirates aren’t the only ones making big bucks. Huge investments and expensive cargoes are at stake. We show you how the piracy capital of the world is not necessarily Eyl in Somalia, but just as much London. Here we find insurance companies, lawyers, specialized negotiators and professional ransom handlers. It’s all big business, and more money is probably spent here than what actually ends up in Somalia.
The shipping companies that don’t trust the might of the EU force and are reluctant to cash out the extra insurance premiums might make other, more controversial arrangements. An industry freshly adapted to the situation is the security business.We present you footage from the secret training camp of one of these companies. And the bill for this growing, lucrative pirate industry? The shipping companies raise their prizes for transport and the insurance companies do the same. The bill finally ends up on the average consumer’s table. Everyone else seem to win; the pirates, the navy, the lawyers, the insurance companies and maybe even the shipping companies – all but normal people and of course a few sailors.

This material is uploaded without profit and is intended for research and educational purposes only. Heroes of Helmand . The British Armys Great Escape.

Miracle escape of the new Rorke's Drift Paras: Cut-off, surrounded and outnumbered - the incredible untold story of the 88 British soldiers who spent 56 days holding off 500 Taliban fighters... and survived. Outgunned, outmanoeuvred, hopelessly outnumbered and besieged in the Afghan desert, a small band of British soldiers chose to save a final bullet for themselves rather than fall into Taliban hands. For nearly two months, the 88 men of Easy Company – a mix of Paratroopers and the Royal Irish – had faced the overwhelming force and firepower of up to 500 Taliban determined to over-run the remote Helmand outpost of Musa Qala.
And their near miraculous survival has been described as a latter day Rorke’s Drift, evocative of the 1879 siege in which 140 British soldiers held off a Zulu force of 3,000, later immortalised in the blockbuster film starring Michael Caine. For 56 days in the autumn of 2006, the men at Musa Qala faced constant fire from fixed machine gun posts and mortars. Hungry and frequently at the point of exhaustion, they were forced to somehow fend off 360-degree attacks from the Taliban, with little protection beyond a series of low mud walls.
They used up a quarter of all the British Army’s Afghan ammunition for that entire year.
Yet today their heroism remains little known, not least because the Ministry of Defence has never permitted the full story of what happened there ten years ago this month to be told.

Nazi Hunters 4/13: Peiper, The Murderer Of Malmedy
Milentije Kindlovski


Published on Feb 12, 2018
Joachim Peiper and his vicious bunch of SS thugs marched US 285th Field Artillery Observation Battalion into a field near Malmedy in January 1945 and shot them. There were a series of other massacres of US soldiers which were attributed to Peiper. The hunters were members of Supreme Headquarters Allied Expeditionary Force. They were horrified by the brutality of the action. It was also the biggest massacre of US soldiers in the Second World War and caused uproar among the US public.

Nazi Hunters 5/13: Death Camp Kommandant
Milentije Kindlovski


Published on Feb 13, 2018
Franz Stangl was the Nazi commandant of the Treblinka and Sobibor death camps in Poland. He was responsible for the extermination of around 900,000 men, women and children. At the end of the war, he escaped to Italy where he joined a "rat-line" organised by Vatican officials. From there, he disappeared. Simon Wiesenthal was a survivor of the Holocaust. Born in the Ukraine in 1908, he was rounded up with his family in 1939 and imprisoned in a labour camp where he serviced the German railroad. In May 1945, he was liberated by Allied soldiers from Mauthausen camp. His six-foot-frame weighed barely 99 pounds. Restored to health, he vowed to track down some of the Nazi monsters who had put him and so many other Jews through hell.

The Vatican Ratlines: Smuggling Nazis to Safety
Milentije Kindlovski


Published on Feb 18, 2018
Ratlines were a system of escape routes for Nazis and other fascists fleeing Europe at the end of World War II. These escape routes mainly led toward havens in Latin America, particularly Argentina, Paraguay, Colombia, Brazil, Uruguay, Mexico, Guatemala, Ecuador and Bolivia, as well as in Switzerland. Other destinations included Australia, Canada, and the Middle East.

There were two primary routes: the first went from Germany to Spain, then Argentina; the second from Germany to Rome to Genoa, then South America. The two routes developed independently but eventually came together to collaborate.

Some of the Nazis and war criminals who escaped using ratlines include:

Andrija Artuković, escaped to the United States; arrested in 1984 after decades of delay and extradited to Yugoslavia, where he died in 1988 from natural causes

Klaus Barbie, fled to Bolivia in 1951 with help from the United States, as he had been an agent of the U.S. Army Counterintelligence Corps since April 1947; captured in 1983; died in prison in France on September 23, 1991

Alois Brunner, fled to Syria in 1954; died around 2010

Adolf Eichmann, fled to Argentina in 1950; captured 1960; executed in Israel on 1 June 1962

Aribert Heim, disappeared in 1962; most likely died in Egypt in 1992

Josef Mengele, fled to Argentina in 1949, then to other countries; died in Brazil in 1979

Ante Pavelić, escaped to Argentina in 1948; died in Spain, in December 1959, of wounds sustained two years earlier in an assassination attempt

Erich Priebke, fled to Argentina in 1949; arrested 1994; died in 2013
Walter Rauff, escaped to Chile; never captured; died in 1984

Eduard Roschmann, escaped to Argentina in 1948; fled to Paraguay to avoid extradition and died there in 1977

Franz Stangl, fled to Brazil in 1951; arrested in 1967 and extradited to West Germany; died in 1971 of heart failure

Gustav Wagner, fled to Brazil in 1950; arrested 1978; committed suicide 1980

Milentije Kindlovski


Published on Feb 16, 2018

1958 "DANGER IS MY BUSINESS" TV SHOW WHALE TRAINER at MARINELAND OF THE PACIFIC 54814
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Aug 25, 2018
This 1958 black and white film “Whale Trainer” is part of the “Danger is My Business” television series produced and hosted by “Mr. Adventure” Lieutenant Colonel John D. Craig. Close-up shots of whales lead to John at Marineland of the Pacific [open 1954-1987] (:07-1:13). The Marineland of the Pacific ship’s captain calls in about a pod of pilot whales (1:14-2:10). The training pool shows “Bubbles”, the first captured pilot whale. [The press surrounding her 2016 death incorrectly attributes her capture to 1966]. Dave Brown, an English marine vet, spreads Zinc Oxide from an ELI Lilly jar on her back (2:11-3:50). A group of men put a mattress-lined cradle into the pool to move her. The whale thrashes about as they administer a syringe to sedate her. A calmer Bubbles is put into the cradle, tied down, hoisted onto the back of a truck, hoisted over to the large pool, and lowered into it (3:51-11:46). At the pool platform, Dave and John discuss that Bubbles won’t eat and a plan to feed her. Dave puts on a diving mask and enters the pool with the whale. Underwater footage shows Dave with tongs and Bubbles angrily swimming around him (11:47-15:00). Dave finally gets his chance to stick squid on the tongs into her mouth. He continues feeding her larger amounts from the tongs. He exits the pool (15:08-16:31). Dave squats on the platform dangling squid above the pool water. Bubbles rises up to take it (16:32-16:55). Bubbles annoys divers feeding fish in the tank (16:56-17:30). Dave crouches on the platform and uses hand signals to tell Bubbles to retrieve a pole with floats on each end and bring it back to him. He rewards her with squid (17:31-18:25). Dave places an innertube on Bubbles’ nose and she lifts it up out of the pool to him. He drops squid in the pilot whale’s mouth. He tosses it and Bubbles plays with it until one day it disappears (18:26-18:54). A diver wearing a hard hat diving suit emerges from the pool, the innertube not found. A hook holds the helmet and the diver ducks out of it (19:05-19:25). In the event the plastic had been swallowed, a jar of mineral oil is shown. The squid bites are thoroughly covered in the oil before feeding it to her. The whale finally burped out the oil and the inner tube, noticed by a sailor (19:26-20:14). A diver retrieves the inner tube and the whale for the first time makes a noise. Dave teaches Bubbles to wear an innertube ‘hat’ (20:15-20:54). The stands are full for Bubble’s performance. She waves with a flipper, spins in the water, ‘speaks’ on Dave’s command, and lifts her hat ring to Dave. She is shown underwater and jumping up out of the water to get squid from Dave. She waves up-close (20:55-23:19). Dave stands on the end of a platform and Bubbles jumps up to get a snack (23:35-24:00). The host, John, ends the film wearing a wetsuit (24:21-24:38).

John D. Craig (1903–1997) was an American businessman, writer, soldier, diver, Hollywood stunt man, film producer, and television host. He worked in the commercial surface-supplied diving industry from the 1930s on, and filmed aerial combat over Europe during World War II. He is best known for using film and television to show the United States public the beauties and dangers of Earth's underwater worlds

THE GOLDEN TWENTIES 1920s AMERICA DOCUMENTARY FILM PART #1 30264
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Sep 21, 2018
The Golden Twenties is a 1950 American documentary film produced by Richard de Rochemont. The film is narrated by Frederick Lewis Allen, Robert Q. Lewis, Allen Prescott, Red Barber, and Elmer Davis. The film opens with shots of city streets lined with cars and sidewalks full of people, before cutting to the front of the New York Public Library (01:21), where a young man browses the American History section before coming across the book that leads into the footage of the 1920s. The first topic is the Armistice of 1918 (03:55), and a crowd gathers in Times Square to celebrate. The steamship George Washington (04:33) takes President Woodrow Wilson to Europe, but Americans are distracted by entertainment including “human flies” who climb buildings (04:54), wing walkers on airplanes (06:12), and baseball games between the Giants and Yankees (05:07). Fashion dominates the day, and French fashion leads the way with night gowns (05:17) and extravagant hats. Aviation is captivating the nation: the Navy’s NC-4 (06:23) takes off on its flight to Great Britain; a British R-34 (06:44) moves across the sky; planes make up the Post Office Air Mail Service (07:00); famous WWI ace fighter pilots Eddie Rickenbacker and Bert Acosta (07:15) pose for photos. American soldiers, like Alvin York, return to the U.S. aboard steamships (08:14). The American Legion holds the 1921 convention in Kansas City (08:36), which features Baron Jacques of Belgium (08:56), Britain’s Sir David Beatty, and General John J. Pershing. Elsewhere, race riots plague city streets (09:19) and the KKK (09:39) spreads its influence. Labor activists like Old Mother Jones (10:28) fight for better wages. In Boston, the police force goes on strike (11:00), leading to the development of a voluntary police force. Massachusetts Governor Calvin Coolidge (11:33) gains popularity saying the police have no right to strike against public safety. A bombing hits Wall Street just outside JP Morgan’s office (12:22). Raids on communist headquarters (12:56), stoked by anger at communists and socialists, lead to the deportation of aliens. Vaudeville acts (14:24) are very popular, featuring the likes of Harry Houdini (15:00) and Gallagher and Shean (15:20). People love the beach (15:32), especially at Atlantic City with its bathing beauty parade (15:52). Dancing takes the nation by storm, as the numbers at dance halls (16:25) swell. Classical dancing (16:38) and ballet are also popular, as is Ruth St. Dennis (16:44). Anna Pavlova and Feodor Chaliapin relax after fleeing post-Bolshevik Russia. Pianist and politician Ignace Paderewski is also popular. Sen. Henry Cabot Lodge, Sr. leads the Senate Foreign Relations Committee’s opposition to President Wilson’s (17:56) League of Nations. Women vote in their first presidential election (18:42), largely supporting the handsome Warren G. Harding. Entertainer Al Jolson (19:01) also lends his support. Democrat James M Cox of Ohio (19:38) doesn’t stand a chance. Harding is sworn in (19:47). President Harding pardons Eugene V. Debs (20:56), and later calls for an international conference to limit armaments (21:47). Sky scrapers are built (20:28). Music captures the nation’s attention. The Black Bottom dance (22:05) and Peggy Hopkins Joyce (22:20). Hollywood tests the reaction of viewers to Rudolph Valentino kissing Vilma Banky (23:20). Will Hays (23:50) is signed up to clean up movies and keep reformers at bay. Popular stars include John Barrymore and Dolores Costello (24:16); Rudolph Valentino (24:26), whose funeral (24:44) is attended to by throngs of people; Rod Larocque and Vilma Banky (25:18); Charlie Chaplin of Dough and Dynamite (25:30); Douglas Fairbanks of 1922’s Robin Hood (26:10); the magical duo Greta Garbo and John Gilbert of 1927’s The Flesh And The Devil (26:30); and Will Rogers (26:58). Al Jolson (27:16) stars in Jazz Singer. Prohibition leads to new sources of income for organized crime. Gerald Chapman (28:30) is a criminal who is arrested and condemned to death. Chicago is home to gangs of bootleggers who are arrested but quickly freed, largely because of the city’s greedy mayor Bill Thompson (29:11). Al Capone (29:35) rules Chicago’s underworld. Religion is still a mainstay in American society, as massive churches pack in the crowds (29:52), drawn by sermons from evangelists like Billy Sunday. In Science, psychologist Emile Coue (30:14) and Austrian Dr. Adolf Lorenz, who demonstrates his bloodless surgery technique (30:23), are widely respected. Madame Marie Curie (30:45) arrives in the U.S. to accept a gift for discovering radium, and Thomas Edison (31:05) remains a nationally respected figure.

THE GOLDEN TWENTIES 1920s AMERICA DOCUMENTARY FILM PART #2 30274
PeriscopeFilm


Published on Sep 21, 2018
The Golden Twenties is a 1950 American documentary film produced by Richard de Rochemont. The film is narrated by Frederick Lewis Allen, Robert Q. Lewis, Allen Prescott, Red Barber, and Elmer Davis. The second reel of the film begins by covering the trial of educator John Scopes (00:16), prosecuted by William Jennings Bryant (00:36) for teaching evolution. Scopes and the principle of freedom of thought are defended by Dudley Field Malone (01:06) and Clarence Darrow (01:18), but the court ultimately finds Scopes guilty. President Harding dies in 1923 and large crowds turn out to pay respect at the funeral (01:39). Calvin Coolidge (02:01; 03:06) becomes president and must overcome the Wyoming and Tea Pot Dome scandal (02:17), in which a secret lease of government oil fields is made by Secretary of the Interior Albert Fall (02:34) to millionaire Harry F. Sinclair. Coolidge survives and is reelected, leading to a Republican celebration at the inaugural ball (03:34). America continues to grow, and no place grows faster than Florida (04:00) and, specifically, Miami (04:12). Though both are hit by a devastating hurricane. Famous international figures visit the U.S. during this time, including the Prince of Wales (05:56) and Queen Marie of Romania (06:23). Queen Marie receives a ticker-tape parade in her honor (07:01). In sports, the New York Giants (07:10) and New York Yankees (07:23) train, as do the Brooklyn Dodgers (07:45) under the eye of Ben Egan. George Sisler (07:54) is the famous player-manager of the St. Louis Browns, but it is Babe Ruth (08:11) who breaks the home run record and leads the Yankees to winning the 1927 World Series (08:32) over the Pirates in four straight games. In other sports headlines, Bobby Jones (09:05) sweeps golf tournaments in Britain and the U.S., Man O’War (09:26) proves to be one of the greatest race horses of all times, and the likes of Red Grange (10:15) and Knute Rockne (10:32) rule the football fields. Johnny Weissmuller (11:07) sets the world record for swimming, and Gertrude Ederle (11:45) becomes the first woman to swim the English Channel earning the love of millions and a massive New York parade (12:08). Men’s tennis is dominated by Bill Tilden (12:32), while Molla Mallory, Suzanne Lenglen, and Helen Wills (12:50) top women’s tennis. Jack Dempsey (13:09) is the king of boxing until his controversial loss to Gene Tunney (14:10). In literature, some of the great writers of the day are Michael Arlen (15:30), Joseph Conrad, H.G. Wells (15:47), and John Galsworthy. Radio towers are built (16:15) all across America, and Americans closely follow intriguing news stories such as the Halls-Mills murder case (16:58) and the Floyd Collins story (17:28). Famous music stars include Metropolitan Opera stars (18:02) Lawrence Tibbett, Rosa Ponselle, and Madam Ernestine Schumann-Heink; singers Marion Talley (18:30) and Grace Moore, and musicians George Gershwin (18:40), Irving Berlin, and Harry Lauder (19:35). In other areas of entertainment, Earl Carroll’s Vanities shows measure women’s bodies (20:00), “proving” the beauty of American women. Americans go to watch automobiles race (20:28). Aviation continues its evolution (21:22), with gyrocopters and other unproven aircraft designs attempting to take flight—often crashing long before making any significant flight. A glider (22:13) soars before throwing the pilot and crashing to the ground. The most famous person in aviation is Charles A. Lindbergh (23:14), who flies from New York to Paris, where he receives a hero’s welcome. Upon his return to New York, he receives another hero’s welcome (23:54). Henry Ford turns out his 15th million car, then celebrates by sitting in the first car he ever made (25:47). President Coolidge accepts an honorary chiefship from the Sioux of South Dakota (24:30) and aids Europe’s post-war recovery with the Kellogg-Briand Pact (26:40). The 1928 presidential race pits Al Smith (27:10) — against Herbert Hoover (27:30). People pack into Times Square on election night (27:44). Hoover wins (28:20) and rides to the Capitol for the swearing in ceremony (29:15). The film shows more scenes of American revelry: beach goers enjoying sun and sand (29:30); Arthur Hammerstein, Irene Castle, and Helen Morgan enjoy coastal Florida life; spectators take in a fashion parade (30:20); people dancing the Charleston (31:45); and the bright lights of Times Square (32:12) and Broadway beckon men and women to enjoy the nightlife. However, the carefree fun crashes to an end with the collapse of Wall Street (34:10), leading to panic and the Great Depression, ending the golden playtime of the 1920s.

The Enchanting Arctic Island of Spitzbergen (1999)
Journeyman Pictures


Published on Sep 21, 2018
Norway's Cold War Relic (1999)
Mid-way between Norway and the North Pole lies the Russian mining island of Spitzbergen. We capture life on this little-known island, its fate determined by a quirk of history.

Subscribe to Journeyman here: http://www.youtube.com/subscription_c...

A statue of Lenin looks out onto a Norwegian icefield. Until 1920 no state officially laid claim to this isle in the Svalbard archipelago. Scandinavian and Russian miners and whalers worked side by side until a treaty gave Norway the land. But the Russians were allowed to keep their mines and Spitzbergen became their strategic European toehold. Now an eclectic mix of nationalities live beside the island’s 3000 polar bears.

A Walk in the Sun (1945) - THEY FOUGHT BEST WHEN IT WAS HOPELESS!
Hwood


Published on May 23, 2016
During WWII, a platoon of American soldiers trudge through the Italian countryside in search of a bridge they have been ordered to blow up, encountering danger and destruction along the way.

In the 1943 invasion of Italy, one American platoon lands, digs in, then makes its way inland to blow up a bridge next to a fortified farmhouse, as tension and casualties mount. Unusually realistic picture of war as long quiet stretches of talk, punctuated by sharp, random bursts of violent action whose relevance to the big picture is often unknown to the soldiers.

Directed by
