The Wartime Chronicles review on Starburst

I had a chance to watch The Wartime Chronicles from Reeltime Pictures. John Levene reprised Sgt Benton and even if the story isn’t fully explained, Andy Lane and Helen Stirling wrote an intriguing piece, which runs to just over 30 minutes. The Chronicles collection includes various documentaries seen before on VHS releases, the Nicholas Courtney voice cameo and…
