In 1918, a film unit descended upon Iwerne Minster in North Dorset to make a film about the daily life of a typical English village as World War I drew to a close. Cinemas were operating behind the front lines as part of the effort to improve the morale of the troops and this is where this film was destined. Whether it ever got there or not is not known as the war came to end shortly after the film was finished. Some years ago, Trilith, the rural media charity, received funding from the Heritage Lottery Fund to add contextual material (in this case, this consisted of interviews with current inhabitants who have a connection with those that appear in the 1918 film, shots of the village and an interview with a descendant of James Ismay who owned the estate in 1918) and to make this rich material more widely accessible. This production also features an original musical soundtrack by Stephen Deutsch who also selected extracts from James Ismay's letters to men and women from the village serving in the war which are read by poet, broadcaster,writer and teacher Sean Street. The video material was shot by John Holman who also edited this piece.
