The British silent Q Ships is set during World War I. The ships of the title are British war vessels, disguised as merchant ships to throw the Germans off guard. Much of the film is devoted to the war of nerves between British admiral Sims (J.P. Kennedy) and German U-boat captain Von Haag (Roy Travers) as they square off in the English Channel. Originally titled Blockade, Q Ships was one of the biggest British moneymakers of the silent era

[The Combat myth : two Gallipolis]( Visual )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

These two films made fifty years apart use the defeat at Gallipoli as the culmination of the drama. Another parallel is male friendship at the centre: between a country and a city boy in Gallipoli (1981), and between two upper-class boys in Tell England (1931). The Australian relationship is more obviously overlaid with myth - Anzac anti-British sentiment and purity of mateship. Patronising class attitudes and stiff-upper-lip mythology in Tell England yields to the reality of combat in line with the pacifism prevailing at the time. In contrast to the often stilted dialogue scenes, combat in Tell England is portrayed with a rough authenticity; in Gallipoli combat is aestheticised
Secrets of nature : pioneering natural history films( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

"The natural world has always inspired fascination. Secrets of Nature, a pioneering series exploring animal, plant and insect life, made wondrous worlds and natural processes visible for the first time: sweet peas unfurl in the sunlight, white owls swoop in on their prey, sea life lurks on the ocean floor and moths patiently spin their cocoons. These films, made by enterprising men and women at the forefront of science and nature filmmaking, developed groundbreaking techniques of time-lapse, microscopic and underwater cinematography. Paving the way for the natural history programmes that we know and love today, these Secrets grant us an entertaining, absorbing, and very special glimpse into the mysteries of the natural world." - container
First over Everest: the Houston-Mount Everest expedition, 1933, by Air-Commodore P.F.M. Fellowes by Houston Mount Everest Expedition( Book )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Tell England( Visual )

1 edition published in 1930 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This drama, which culminates in the ill-fated Gallipoli campaign, follows the fortunes of two public school friends who become officers. In a film of divided, somewhat confined intentions the actual scenes of battle, imaginatively edited with effective use of sound (also intermittently evident in the rest of the film) bear comparison with counterparts All Quiet On the Western Front and Westfront 1918. But the futility of war theme gives way to the endorsement of the status quo and to more conventional heroics in the British stiff-upper-lip tradition. In the Gallipoli scenes Asquith was greatly assisted by Barkas who had earlier made war record films
