Silksheen Photography was recently invited along to East Kirkby to act as the Stills Unit for a television documentary currently in production - The Nuremberg Raid is an investigative film focused on Bomber Command’s deadliest night of the Second World War.
Over a duration of 120 minutes, the documentary will reconstruct the crucial 24-hour time-span of Bomber Command’s fateful raid of 30/31 March 1944 that claimed the lives of over 700 airmen and the loss, to all causes, of well over 100 aircraft.
Aided by eye-witness interviews, historical evidence and recently declassified information three historians will combine decades of research to cast new light upon a raid shrouded in conspiracy theory. By revisiting the carnage of the Nuremberg Raid through a modern perspective, this documentary aims to provide an unprecedented opportunity for a new generation to rediscover Second World War technologies, secret intelligence operations and ultimately bring closure to Bomber Command’s deadliest night.
For more information on the Nuremberg raid itself, please visit Mark Chandler's most informative website HERE and for post production work on the documentary, the team can be followed on Facebookand Twitter.
Silksheen Photography extends sincere gratitude to Harold Panton, Andrew Panton, Louise Bush, Mark Chandler, Neil Richard-Sylvester-King, The Nuremberg Raid Production Team and all the members of The Summer of ’44 Living History Group for two hugely enjoyable and productive photography sessions.
