It's too important to be taken down so soon': Viewers urge BBC to put Peter Jackson's 'They Shall Not Grow Old' war documentary back on iPlayer after it's removed after just seven days
Viewers who missed Peter Jackson's First World War masterpiece 'They Shall Not Grow Old' today begged the BBC to put it back on iPlayer after it was deleted after just seven days.
The documentary about the horrors of the Great War, first broadcast on Remembrance Sunday, has been called the 'must watch' TV highlight of the year.
But it was only on BBC iPlayer for a week until midnight last night - not the 30 days for the majority of TV shows and films - with many saying it was 'too important to be taken down so soon'.
Mr Jackson's moving epic, created by colourising footage from the Imperial War Museum’s archive, was even co-produced by BBC Films but it can no longer be seen online.
Fans are today asking the BBC to reverse its decision - but the corporation has said a 'rights issues' forced them to delete it last night and it has failed to give any more detail.
The cinematography on this short 12min documentary is absolutely nothing short of breathtaking! Best watched full screen.
