The Next of Kin (1942), The New Lot (1943), Read All About It (1945), What's The Next Job DVD9 Imperial War Museum Offical Collection
The Imperial War Museum Collection features rare and fascinating original films preserved in the Museum's vaults. Many have never been released to the public before. The collection of four rare, dramatised films presented here capture life in Britain during World War Two, both on the Home Front and in the armed services, from being called up to finding your way in 'Civvy Street' after de mobbing. The lead film, The Next Of Kin, started out as an Army instructional film but went on to be an enormous hit at the box office.

Released by the famed Ealing Studios in 1942 The Next of Kin graphically illustrated the disastrous effect of careless talk on the Home Front and how it almost wrecks a daring British commando raid. Churchill personally wanted to see it banned! The New Lot follows the adventures of raw army recruits in 1943, while 1945s Read All About It was an Army Bureau of Current Affairs film dramatising a discussion withthe ex-editor of a newspaper about how to read newspapers intelligently and put the news in proper perspective. The fourth film, What's The Next Job, was made to help the recently de-mobbed find a job in Civvie Street.
