The Clinton Street Theater says
BBC North America Worldwide is offering 4 feature films free of charge this summer to celebrate the 70th Anniversary of the end of World War ll. This is a follow up to last year’s series commemorating the 100th anniversary of the start of WW1. These films cover a variety of topics and star many well-known British actors. They are made for TV productions that have not been shown in the US, and are new except for one star studded film that played over a dozen years ago on PBS.

If you like history, especially WW2 history, then make plans to be at one or all!


An adaptation of the popular Michael Frayn stage-play based around a strange trip the German physicist Werner Heisenberg made to Copenhagen in 1941 to see his Danish counterpart Niels Bohr. Old friends and close colleagues, they had revolutionised atomic physics in the 1920s with their work together. But now the world had changed and the two men were on opposite sides in a world war. The meeting was fraught with danger and embarrassment and ended in disaster. In Frayn's play, Heisenberg meets Bohr and his wife Margrethe once again to look for the answers and to work out how we can ever know why we do what we do.
