Cape Town – Prince William will attend the world premiere of Peter Jackson's They Shall Not Grow Old at the BFI London Film Festival.

The First World War film uses ground-breaking methods that transform years-old footage to provide a new understanding of the human experience of life at the front.

It was co-commissioned by 14-18 NOW - the UK’s arts programme for the First World War centenary – as well as Imperial War Museums.
