A filmmaker’s bid to immortalise WWII

An intrepid young filmmaker has made it his mission to interview every surviving combat veteran from the Second World War.

Rishi Sharma told Sky News he felt a "responsibility to document the reality of the combat these men went through", which inspired him to get to work on an ambitious series to give them "an extended life".

Appearing on Kay Burley@Breakfast, the 22-year-old said his long fascination with the conflict and admiration for the troops who fought made him want to meet as many of them as he could.
