Netflix has acquired the docuseries Greatest Events of World War Two in HD Colour, a coproduction between London-based indie World Media Rights and Germany’s ZDF Enterprises, to air across 190 countries.

The series uses archive footage acquired from more than 39 sources, including library footage from Japan and Russia processed with colorization software.

From the Blitzkrieg of Germany’s tanks across Europe to the Battle of Britain; from the War in the Pacific to D-Day and Hiroshima, the series documents the conflict in color.

WMR CEO Alan Griffiths and creative director David McNab serve as executive producers.

‘We’re thrilled that Netflix is bringing ‘Greatest Events of World War Two in HD Colour’ to their millions of subscribers. The series reveals unseen archive footage from the most perilous moments of WWII in remarkable colour that makes for compelling box-set viewing,” Griffiths said in a statement.

Greatest Events of World War Two in HD Colour is the follow up to WMR’s World War Two in HD Colour, which was narrated by Robert Powell and sold in more than 55 countries. The series is a Netflix Original and is distributed by ZDFE.
