World War II
World War II known as the Second World War, was a global war that lasted from 1939 to 1945. The vast majority of the world's countries—including all the great powers—eventually formed two opposing military alliances: the Allies and the Axis. A state of total war emerged, directly involving more than 100 million people from over 30 countries; the major participants threw their entire economic and scientific capabilities behind the war effort, blurring the distinction between civilian and military resources. World War II was the deadliest conflict in human history, marked by 50 to 85 million fatalities, most of whom were civilians in the Soviet Union and China, it included massacres, the genocide of the Holocaust, strategic bombing, premeditated death from starvation and disease, the only use of nuclear weapons in war. Japan, which aimed to dominate Asia and the Pacific, was at war with China by 1937, though neither side had declared war on the other. World War II is said to have begun on 1 September 1939, with the invasion of Poland by Germany and subsequent declarations of war on Germany by France and the United Kingdom.
From late 1939 to early 1941, in a series of campaigns and treaties, Germany conquered or controlled much of continental Europe, formed the Axis alliance with Italy and Japan. Under the Molotov–Ribbentrop Pact of August 1939, Germany and the Soviet Union partitioned and annexed territories of their European neighbours, Finland and the Baltic states. Following the onset of campaigns in North Africa and East Africa, the fall of France in mid 1940, the war continued between the European Axis powers and the British Empire. War in the Balkans, the aerial Battle of Britain, the Blitz, the long Battle of the Atlantic followed. On 22 June 1941, the European Axis powers launched an invasion of the Soviet Union, opening the largest land theatre of war in history; this Eastern Front trapped most crucially the German Wehrmacht, into a war of attrition. In December 1941, Japan launched a surprise attack on the United States as well as European colonies in the Pacific. Following an immediate U. S. declaration of war against Japan, supported by one from Great Britain, the European Axis powers declared war on the U.
S. in solidarity with their Japanese ally. Rapid Japanese conquests over much of the Western Pacific ensued, perceived by many in Asia as liberation from Western dominance and resulting in the support of several armies from defeated territories; the Axis advance in the Pacific halted in 1942. Key setbacks in 1943, which included a series of German defeats on the Eastern Front, the Allied invasions of Sicily and Italy, Allied victories in the Pacific, cost the Axis its initiative and forced it into strategic retreat on all fronts. In 1944, the Western Allies invaded German-occupied France, while the Soviet Union regained its territorial losses and turned toward Germany and its allies. During 1944 and 1945 the Japanese suffered major reverses in mainland Asia in Central China, South China and Burma, while the Allies crippled the Japanese Navy and captured key Western Pacific islands; the war in Europe concluded with an invasion of Germany by the Western Allies and the Soviet Union, culminating in the capture of Berlin by Soviet troops, the suicide of Adolf Hitler and the German unconditional surrender on 8 May 1945.
Following the Potsdam Declaration by the Allies on 26 July 1945 and the refusal of Japan to surrender under its terms, the United States dropped atomic bombs on the Japanese cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki on 6 and 9 August respectively. With an invasion of the Japanese archipelago imminent, the possibility of additional atomic bombings, the Soviet entry into the war against Japan and its invasion of Manchuria, Japan announced its intention to surrender on 15 August 1945, cementing total victory in Asia for the Allies. Tribunals were set up by fiat by the Allies and war crimes trials were conducted in the wake of the war both against the Germans and the Japanese. World War II changed the political social structure of the globe; the United Nations was established to foster international co-operation and prevent future conflicts. The Soviet Union and United States emerged as rival superpowers, setting the stage for the nearly half-century long Cold War. In the wake of European devastation, the influence of its great powers waned, triggering the decolonisation of Africa and Asia.
Most countries whose industries had been damaged moved towards economic expansion. Political integration in Europe, emerged as an effort to end pre-war enmities and create a common identity; the start of the war in Europe is held to be 1 September 1939, beginning with the German invasion of Poland. The dates for the beginning of war in the Pacific include the start of the Second Sino-Japanese War on 7 July 1937, or the Japanese invasion of Manchuria on 19 September 1931. Others follow the British historian A. J. P. Taylor, who held that the Sino-Japanese War and war in Europe and its colonies occurred and the two wars merged in 1941; this article uses the conventional dating. Other starting dates sometimes used for World War II include the Italian invasion of Abyssinia on 3 October 1935; the British historian Antony Beevor views the beginning of World War II as the Battles of Khalkhin Gol fought between Japan and the fo
Fountain Studios was an independently owned television studio located in Wembley Park, north-west London, close to Wembley Park underground station. The company was part of the Avesco Group plc. A number of companies owned the site before it was purchased by Fountain in 1993.

In 1927, Ralph J. Pugh and Rupert Mason founded British Incorporated Pictures with the intention of creating an American-style studio complex in the former British Empire Exhibition's Palace of Engineering, they bought a lease at Wembley in June 1927, though it was for the Lucullus Garden Club Restaurant site, not the Palace of Engineering. Their financial backing fell in May 1928 the lease was sold to Victor Sheridan.
Sheridan announced that £500,000 was to be spent on developing the biggest and best-equipped studio centre in Europe, British Talking Pictures engaged with Dynamics Corporation of New York to develop and supply a new improved Electromagnetic horn driver known as the Type 1 for its state of the art studio. Sheridan sold his lease to British Talking Pictures a few months later. In September 1928, British Talking Pictures formed a subsidiary, British Sound Film Productions, to make films at Wembley. Wembley Studios was Britain's first purpose-built sound studios, its three sound stages were opened in September 1929. Because of a major fire, the studio was never as successful as had been hoped, they were taken over by the American Fox Film Company, who leased the site and bought it outright in 1936. Fox used the studio for the production of their'quota quickies'. A change in the law in 1938 led 20th Century Fox to use other studios. During the war the studios were leased with intermittent rental to independents.
Ealing Studios filmed Ships with Wings at Wembley in 1941. There was a fire at the studios in 1943. In the 1950s the studios were used by Mercia Film Productions, who made feature films, Rayant Pictures, who made shorts and adverts; the last film made at Wembley was Ealing Studios' The Ship of Shame. Wembley Film Studio was taken over by Associated-Rediffusion, ITV’s weekday broadcasters for London, in January 1955. Two of the existing studios were converted by the time commercial television began in September 1955, with the other two by the end of the year. An expansion on the site, the newly built Studio 5, opened in 1960, it was the largest television studio in Europe, could be split into two parts for separate productions when required. The first production was An Arabian Night with Orson Welles. Shows such as Ready Steady Go!, No Hiding Place and Take Your Pick were to follow. During the 1960s the studios were home to some of the most popular programmes on the ITV network, including The Rat Catchers, Blackmail, At Last, The 1948 Show and The Frost Report.
The Beatles appeared on more than one occasion at the studios. When Associated-Rediffusion lost its weekday ITV franchise in 1968, the television studios entered a difficult period. For a time they became LWT’s broadca
Basil Dearden was an English film director. Dearden was born at 5, Woodfield Road, Leigh-on-Sea, Essex to Charles James Dear, a steel manufacturer, his wife, Florence née Tripp. Dearden graduated from theatre direction to film, he changed his own name to Dearden to avoid confusion with his mentor. He first began working as a director at Ealing Studios, co-directing comedy films with Will Hay, including The Goose Steps Out and My Learned Friend, he worked on the influential chiller compendium Dead of Night and directed the linking narrative and the "Hearse Driver" segment. He directed The Captive Heart starring Michael Redgrave, a 1946 British war drama, produced by Ealing Studios; the film was entered into the 1946 Cannes Film Festival. The Blue Lamp the most shown of Dearden's Ealing films, is a police drama which first introduced audiences to PC George Dixon resurrected for the long-running Dixon of Dock Green television series, his last Ealing film, Out of the Clouds, was released in 1955. In years he became associated with the writer and producer Michael Relph, the two men made films on subjects not tackled by British cinema in this era.
These included race relations. In the mid to late 1960s Dearden made some big-scale epics including Khartoum, with Charlton Heston and Laurence Olivier, the Edwardian era black comedy The Assassination Bureau, again with Michael Relph, his last film was The Man Who Haunted Himself with Roger Moore, with whom he made three episodes of the television series The Persuaders!: Overture, Powerswitch and To the Death, Baby. He had Torquil Dearden and the screenwriter and director James Dearden. Dearden died on 23 March 1971 at Hillingdon Hospital, London after having been involved in a road accident on the M4 motorway near Heathrow Airport, in which he suffered multiple injuries; the film critic David Thomson does not hold Dearden in high regard. He writes: " films are decent and plodding and his association with Michael Relph is a fair representative of the British preference for bureaucratic cinema, it stands for the underlining of obvious meaning". More positively, for Brian McFarlane, the Australian writer on film: "Dearden's films offer, among other rewards, a fascinating barometer of public taste at its most nearly consensual over three decades".
Regular Ealing cinematographer Douglas Slocombe enjoyed working with Dearden describing him as the'most competent' of the directors he worked with at Ealing. Basil Dearden on IMDb Criterion Collection Essay Film Reference biography Screenonline biography Fandango filmography
