Bombs at Teatime

Tea drinking, rationing and the Blitz… Welcome to the 1940s.

Take a trip back in time to the 1940s. As if fighting World War II wasn’t hard enough, British people had to put up with years of rationing, baths taken in a couple of inches of water and frequent outbreaks of head lice…

Bombs at Teatime is a portrait of life in Britain throughout one of the most extraordinary decades of our history. At times wry, affectionate and surprising, these films document a time of great austerity as Britain sought to retain its sanity in the shadow of war. Completing the collection are 4 dramas made for the BBC’s Play for Today including Blue Remembered Hills and Rainy Day Women.
