The creator of ITV’s Downton Abbey has praised a Bromley filmmaker as her wartime drama Blitz & Bananas is launched on DVD.

Described as “adorable” by Julian Fellowes, the film by Anna Littler was inspired by her Great Uncle who served as an RAF pilot in the Second World War and never returned.

Aided by members of the Orpington Video and Film Makers, as well as around 150 volunteers, Anna’s film tells the story of a courageous little girl set during war time Bromley.

Anna said: “I feel so indebted to those who risked, or even gave their lives for us and for our freedom.”
