Produced by the British Government in October 1940, ‘London Can Take It’ is narrated by American journalist Quentin Reynolds and pays tribute to London and its people during the Blitz on the capital.

The film’s huge impact at the time, especially in the USA, makes it historically one of the most important of the Ministry of Information’s wartime films. It’s truly fascinating to watch this window into the past.
