Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, and Imperial War Museums in association with the BBC, THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD has been created exclusively with original footage from Imperial War Museums' film archive and audio from BBC archives.

Presenting his new work to mark the centenary of the First World War, the internationally renowned director Peter Jackson (The Hobbit, The Lord of the Rings) combined his personal fascination with the period and his Academy Award winning directorial skills to bring the First World War to life in a way never seen before. THEY SHALL NOT GROW OLD uses the voices of the veterans combined with original archival footage to bring to life the reality of war on the front line for a whole new generation. Footage has been colourised, converted to 3D and transformed with modern production techniques to present never-before-seen detail.

DIRECTOR: Peter Jackson

PRODUCERS: Peter Jackson and Clare Olssen
