The Imperial War Museum will be taking us behind the scenes of some of the most iconic war films ever made.

"Real to Reel: A Century of War Movies" will explore how film-makers have found inspiration from real events, using the drama of war to tell stories about love and loss, fear and courage, and triumph and tragedy.

The exhibition will use a combination of costumes, props, scripts, sketches and film clips from classic movies like 'The Dam Busters', 'Where Eagles Da', 'Apocalypse Now', 'Lawrence of Arabia', 'Das Boot', 'Casablanca', 'Saving Private Ryan' and 'War Horse', to explore the historic events and experiences that have inspired them.
