That is a fantastic video. Color really makes images from 60 years ago, feel present day.
Watch 16 seconds in...I had no idea they had those signs back then!
Awesome. The happiness of those celebrating (notice the blonde Sailor kissing all the girls as he walks with a cane), was well contrasted with scenes showing the human cost of the war. And the smiling PTO U.S. Soldiers at the end...One of them could have been my father. What our parents' and grandparents' generation went through, we'll never really know.
Well, it was a TV series about 10 years ago.
...other interesting titles there, too.
WW1 in colour, too but I believe it is colour-ized footage.
That clip is from a History Channel program called World War II - The Lost Color Archives that aired in 2000. Good series with a lot of color footage.
I bought that series on VHS when it first came on the market. The entire collection is utterly fascinating. I highly reccomend it!
I have to get that one!!
Yes, there are a couple or more, "WW2 in colour film" type documentaries.
"WW2 in Colour" was from 1998.
There´s a whole channel on youtube, full of WWII colour videos
OUTSTANDING DC!!:eusa_clap THANKS!!
The History Channel also ran the series THE COLOR OF WAR which is pretty good. With 17 episodes on five discs there is over 780 minutes of color footge to see. They say it's the most extensive all-color documentary ever produced about the Second World War.
