Jisc MediaHub - Image of the Month

45 years ago, Lord Attenborough was interviewed about his film version of ‘Oh What a Lovely War’ on ITV news, six years after the première of the stage musical. It is poignant not just because of his recent death but also because it is now 100 years since the outbreak of the First World War which it satirises.
