Featuring over 2 ½ hours of rare footage, this  DVD collection features many nostalgic performances by the variety acts and singers that helped Britain to ‘Keep Smiling Through’ during WWII. All the big names are here – Flanagan & Allan, Gracie Fields, Robb Wilton, Sydney Burchall, Tommy Trinder, Peter Sinclair, Vera Lynn, Max Wall, Joe Loss and Mantovani – as well as other, less celebrated or now forgotten balancing acts, strongmen and comedians of the war years.

This release also celebrates the wartime work of ENSA – the ‘Entertainments National Service Association’ set up in 1939 to provide entertainment for British armed service personnel throughout the war. ENSA endearingly became known by the troops as ‘Every Night Something Awful!’
