It is Jackson’s first documentary as a director, although he directed the mockumentary Forgotten Silver in 1995 and produced the West Memphis documentary Three West of Memphis in 2012. Jackson, whose grandfather (to whom the film is dedicated) fought in the war, intended the film to be an immersive experience of «what it was like to be a soldier» rather than a history or recounting of events. The team reviewed 600 hours of interviews with 200 veterans and 100 hours of original footage to make the film. The title was inspired by the line «They Shall Not Grow Old, as we who are left to grow old» from the 1914 poem «For the Fallen» by Laurence Binyon, famously used in the Ode of Remembrance.
They Shall Not Grow Old premiered simultaneously at the BFI London Film Festival and in selected cinemas in the UK on October 16, 2018, before airing on BBC Two on November 11, 2018 (the centenary of the Armistice of November 11, 1918); it received a limited U.S. release on December 17. Following its box office success, the film received a wide theatrical release in February 2019 (the film’s theatrical release was handled by Warner Bros. Pictures). The documentary was critically acclaimed for its restoration work, immersive atmosphere, and depiction of the war, and earned a BAFTA Award nomination for Best Documentary.

If the movie isn’t on Netflix, it probably won’t be on Netflix anytime soon. Earlier this month, Universal announced that starting in 2022, all of the studio’s films will be streaming on Peacock no later than four months after theatrical release.
Taken from a line in a well-known poem written in the 19th century, the phrase «lest we forget» means «should not be forgotten.» We say or write ‘lest we forget’ in Commemorations to always remember the service and sacrifice of people who have served in wars, conflicts and peacekeeping operations….
The phrase «lest we forget» is intended to warn people not to forget those who fought and died for their country. Its literal translation is «not to be forgotten». That is why it is often heard during Remembrance Day commemorations. It is often inscribed on war memorials and graves.
Sad They Shall Not Grow Old is not available on British Netflix but is available on Netflix Canada. With a few simple steps, you can change your Netflix region to Canada and watch They Shall Not Grow Old and many other movies and shows not available on Netflix British.

Mistika Ultima’s functionality for sharing environments across Park Road’s systems extends in rendering capability across rooms and machines. With high-end hardware and an easy-to-manage installation, Mistika Ultima was able to leverage Park Road’s SAN and network infrastructure with very little overhead for the system administrator.
Stereo D equipment, allowed the colorists at Park Road to take advantage of the deep multi-layer support that Mistika offers. «There was often the opportunity to creatively re-light a scene with Jackson and fine tune the shot in the final color correction to deliver exactly what was needed. Without a doubt Mistika would be my first choice to bring those scenes to life as they had never been seen before,» comments colorist Jon Newell.
Mistika was used as the base system from the beginning of the project. The platform provided me with excellent tools not only for color but also for compositing and allowed me to bring information through the entire stack from the original scan, pixel by pixel if necessary, to enhance the color in the final images and achieve that reality and emotional connection that such important content demanded. This meant that the final images sent to Stereo D perfectly expressed the incredible narrative of the documentary,» notes Matthew Wear, lead colorist.
