【剧名】：国家地理 二战启示录 - National Geographic World War II The Apocalypse
这个月的国家地理频道将呈现由私人拍摄的影片，里头纪录了令人震惊的事件，但并非上述发生在现代的事件。《二次大战启示录》播出在 1940 年代用 8 厘米和 16 厘米摄影机所拍下的惊心动魄的影片。当法国政府撤守巴黎时，一些业余摄影者在现场拍下数千人连同其家人在街上排排站的情景。还有一段影片拍下纳粹士兵在雪地和泥地中朝莫斯科前进，由此显示这趟长征不是新闻片段，而是身处前线的人针对战争真实面的个人观点。
National Geographic Channel marks the 70th anniversary of the start of World War II with a powerful, six-part series, World War II: The Apocalypse.
World War Two: The Apocalypse
As the French evacuated Paris in June 1940, amateur filmmakers documented the exodus as thousands lined the roads with their families and most precious possessions.
As the British sifted through the rubble, people grabbed cameras to capture what it meant to stand up to Hitler throughout the Blitz.
And as the Nazi army slogged through the mud and snow of Soviet Russia on the way to Moscow, soldiers used 8mm cameras to film the hardships of the war as they experienced it.
This was not the stock, newsreel or propaganda footage from World War II that authorities approved and audiences became accustomed to seeing. This was sometimes provocative footage taken by those who witnessed the war first-hand. This was the footage deemed ‘unfit’ for civilians to see. At the end of the war, this and other “Top Secret” footage of the war’s destruction was stashed away and forgotten.
Now, thanks to the efforts of a few private collectors and archivists, these forgotten films have been rediscovered, restored and featured in an extraordinary 6-part series in commemoration of the 70th anniversary of World War II.
