Join us for as we examine the Carol Reed-directed 1944 British classic 'The Way Ahead' starring David Niven, Stanley Holloway, William Hartnell, Peter Ustinov and John Laurie. We're joined by special guest Richard Fisher, of the Vickers MG Collection and Research Association (http://www.vickersmg.org.uk/), who picked the film partly due to its iconic scene featuring a Vickers Gun!. The film follows a platoon of men through their call-up, training and up to their first experience of battle!
