The search is on for World War Two veterans who appeared in the famous "Calling Blighty" films.

The films were sent home to families from soldiers serving in the Far East.

In 1944 hundreds of families were invited to local cinemas to watch messages from their loved ones.

The North West Film Archive wants to trace them and their families to recreate those special moments.
