World première plus live satellite Q&A with Peter Jackson
Broadcast from the London Film Festival and hosted by film critic Mark Kermode
Co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW, the UK's arts programme for the First World War centenary, and Imperial War Museums, 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) combines 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. The project 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.
Live coverage from the red carpet begins at 18:00
