In the 200 years since the American Revolution, the United States and Great Britain have moved from enemies to firm allies. This documentary follows military experts and historians as they work through the top secret 'War Plan Red' to see how a hypothetical battle between America and Great Britain might have unfolded.
This is the trailer my 65-minute doc "Every Step You Take": www.EveryStepYouTake.org With an estimated four million surveillance cameras, Britain is by far the most-watched nation on earth. How could this come about in George Orwell's mother country? Why haven't other nations copied the schemes if they really are as successful as the Home Office and the police are saying? Is there a real effect in crime reduction or has CCTV only been introduced for the people's 'peace of mind'? Are there any vested interests in the proliferation of CCTV? Trying to answer questions like these, the investigative documentary "EVERY STEP YOU TAKE" digs deep into an entirely British phenomenon: nation-wide video surveillance. It features formal interviews with police chiefs, CCTV managers as well as experts in the fields of surveillance research and data protection. Investigative research uncovers secrets that will make every responsible Briton worry. For details on how to see the film and more information check www.EveryStepYouTake.org.
Big Picture: Soldier in Britain - National Archives and Records Administration - ARC Identifier 2569551 / Local Identifier 111-TV-281 - DVD copied by Katie Filbert. Department of Defense. Department of the Army. Office of the Deputy Chief of Staff for Operations. US Army Audiovisual Center. (ca. 1974 - 05/15/1984). Today--for the first time in history--American military personnel are stationed on the soil of Great Britain in peacetime. Filmed against a backdrop of rolling countryside, villages, and historic landmarks, "Soldier in Britain" tells the story of Americans and Britains learning to live and work together. The American soldier's primary duty in Great Britain is to protect the numerous air bases of the Strategic Air Command. Quonset huts dot the landscape from one end of England to the other, and Englishmen going about their daily tasks may at any time hear an alert, and see troops from a friendly nation hastening off to an airbase to blaze away at a target. As the film unfolds, the television viewer will accompany the American soldiers stationed in Britain as they get to know Trafalgar Square (center of the City of London) as they watch a game of Rugby at Oxford, and visit historic Westminster Abbey. These are only a few of many sights covered by THE BIG PICTURE camera crews for "Soldier in Britain."
