The film was shot in black and white on 16 mm film. Despite its grainy, newsreel feel, no actual stock footage was used. The filming equipment was mostly borrowed. The audio quality and lighting during the opening are poor, making the opening dialog difficult to follow. Stanley Kubrick donated film stock from 'Dr. Strangelove' to help finish this film. Wartime BBC radio announcers Alvar Lidell and John Snagge donated their services to reconstruct voice newsreels and radio broadcasts. Director Tony Richardson co-financed the final production.

Ignore Leonard Maltin's comments - he's clearly missed the point of the film. The "Brits" don't keep a stiff upper lip, and the cooperation between them and the Nazis is shocking. The documentary footage of Nazi soldiers parading around London etc appears ever so real. The awesome photography makes up for the weak plot and main character. A must-see.
The Battle of Algiers is another such film which mixes documentary with drama.
