"Apocalypse: The Second World War" is a six-part French documentary about the Second World War. The documentary is comprised exclusively of actual footage of the war as filmed by war correspondents, soldiers, resistance fighters and private citizens. The series is shown in color, with the black and white footages being fully colorized, save for some original color footage. The only exception to the treatment are most Holocaust scenes, which are presented in the original black and white.
To mark the 70th anniversary in 2009 of the most devastating war of all times, France 2 and CC&C present APOCALYPSE, a landmark series on World War II, for the first time in HD, color and 5.1 Dolby sound, using exclusively archive footage, 50% of which have never been seen before.
The six episodes of APOCALYPSE tell the story in a unique way: combining the major historical events of the war throughout the world with the point of view of the ordinary people, always remaining the closest to those, great and small, who lived or died through it. APOCALYPSE provides a truly global perspective of the War.
