Listen to Britain is a 1942 British propaganda short film by Humphrey Jennings and Stewart McAllister. The film was produced during World War II by the Crown Film Unit, an organisation within the British Government's Ministry of Information to support the Allied war effort. The film was nominated for the inaugural Academy Award for Documentary Feature in 1942, but lost against four other allied proganda films. The film depicts a day in the life of Britain during the blitz, and is noted for its nonlinear structure and its use of sound. Listen to Britain is widely regarded as a masterpiece and one of the best British films of all time.
