Songs that Won the War, with Dame Vera Lynn, is one of our best sellers. Reaching Number One in the Music Video Charts in 1995, this film has sold in excess of 800,000 copies and has been broadcast in the UK and the USA. The film was updated and digitally remastered in 2014.

This award-winning classic favourite has been copied many times but has never been bettered. We originally spent over a year researching and sourcing rare footage of some of the finest singers and entertainers from the period, before producing this real piece of nostalgia.

We first released this film in 1995, to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the end of the Second World War.
