Good episode? Give it some love!
A documentary by a non-historian for non-historians. 

This special episode of the Freedom Report podcast is a movie review of director Peter Jackson's documentary about the Great War. Host Austin Petersen is joined by guests Jack Stocker and Camellia Plosser who attended the screening in Kansas City on December 17th, 2018. 

November of 2018 marks the 100 year anniversary of the armistice, signaling the end of global conflict and the rise of a new post war world order. Jackson takes footage from World War one and restores it to the extreme, mixing audio and research in a way to paint the conflict in a more human light. Jackson's work comes alive in the voices of surviving veterans of the conflict, recorded by the BBC in the 1960's, and presented here as part of an aesthetically pleasing whole. You'll hear things you've never heard, feel things you've never felt, and see things you've never seen. 

Jackson's documentary makes excellent use of his vast cinematic talent, while working within the confines of only using authentic footage available to him. The director was prohibited from using historic reenactments to fill in for space. 

Petersen, Plosser, and Stocker review Peter Jackson's "They Shall Not Grow Old" in this episode of the Freedom Report podcast.
