Fourteen wartime films looking both at the vital contribution made to Britain's war efforts by women, and the experiences of evacuee children. 'They Keep The Wheels Turning' (1942) illustrates how women became garage mechanics to free up men for war service and to keep civilian vehicles running. 'Britannia is a Woman' (1940) is a celebration of women's contributions to the war effort - especially the WVS. In 'Jane Brown Changes Her Job' (1942), a typist switches her job - and ends up building Spitfires. In 'They Also Serve' (1940), the vital importance of the housewife's role is shown, supporting her family as they make their contributions. 'Westward Ho!' (1940) provides a moving account of evacuee children being sent to safety in the West Country. 'Living With Strangers' (1941) takes a look at easing the social problems caused by evacuee families descending on small English villages. 'Village School' (1940) is a celebration of how the 'free' English education system benefitted both local and evacuee children. 'Night Shift' (1942) is the story of a typical night shift at No.11 Royal Ordnance Factory, Newport, producing guns for tanks. 'Women At War' (1941) shows the heroic contribution of British women to the war effort. 'Ladies Only' (1943) was produced by the Southern Railway Film Unit and illustrates how women played a role on Britain's wartime railways. 'WVS (Women's Voluntary Services)' (1941) takes a look at the many and varied contributions made by the women of the WVS. 'WRNS' (1941) is a fictionalised documentary following a Wren on her first posting in the Women's Royal Naval Service. 'Willing Hands' (1944) provides a fascinating account of the work of the WVS in the latter part of the war. Finally, in 'Canteen On Wheels' (1941), a new girl joins a YMCA mobile canteen and helps both military and civilian personnel during the Blitz.
