Watch Apocalypse: The Second World War (UK)


Apocalypse: The Second World War is the epic story of World War II, in which millions of soldiers fought, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, as war raged across countries and continents. This six-part series also gives insight into the moving story of millions of civilians, whose homes were destroyed and lives disrupted, as they were caught up in the cataclysm of war.

To tell this story, the best footage of World War II has been painstakingly transformed, using digital techniques, into colour. Along with original colour home movies, it gives a completely new perspective on one of the great events of the last century. This is the powerful story of the Apocalypse and of the people who fought the Second World War.
