Clockface ticks, emphasising the round-the-clock efforts of the DPRK workforce

More images of underground factories, and torch-illuminated underground rifle ranges

Present-day tour guide shows Korean visitors mortars produced in the underground factories; medical treatment rooms; and bathing rooms.

Female workers produce ammunition cartridges in underground factories

DPRK machine guns fire in the field

Artillery shells are spun in a factory

Artillery explosions amidst scores of approaching troops

**Please note: this programme was produced by the Documentary Film Studio of the DPRK and offers a version of events, commentary and opinion from the perspective of the DPRK.**

This volume focuses on the war effort behind the front-line, constantly illustrating the direct links between work done in the factories, fields, towns and villages with the troops on the front line. There is little vilification of the enemy forces in this tape; it is much more a celebration of the community spirit and hard-work given by workers behind the front-line.

There are many interesting aspects of the tape, including:

- Footage of underground armament factories, textiles factories, shops, hospitals, and schools.

- Footage of 1950s DPRK civilian life: people are shown in their daily lives often seemingly at ease, dancing, talking and singing.

- One scene of Kim Il-Sung talking and laughing with a civilian

The tape is black and white, and appears to use solely DPRK footage.

A wall of fire appears to burn away forest cover

A DPRK soldier fires a machine gun

Explosions

Posters urge citizens: "To the harvest! [lit: to the Autumn Front-Line]" [Note: the early DPRK state aimed to remove class- and work-distinctions by 'encouraging' town and city workers to return to the countryside and help with the harvests. This practice is believed to have continued long after the war.]

Workers attend a motivational meeting prior to the harvest, under a tree

Happy workers cut the cereal [wheat? barley? hay?] and load it onto animal-drawn carts, before communally threshing it.

Workers use the threshed stalks to create fabric for sacks

Men measure out quantities of grain into the sacks

The sacks are carried by ox and by lorry to other locations

Formally-dressed women deliver harvest-produce to soldiers

Moving footage of KIS talking and laughing with an elderly lady

Young boys spread muck on the paddy fields

Mixed labour teams dig small paddy fields for sowing, female teams use ox-drawn ploughs. Cuts to very large paddy fields being sown by tractors (Note: these contrasting images may be aiming to portray the previous, 'capitalist' and labour-intensive method of production and the latter 'socialist', mechanised method)

A lady sits in front of a car on a path between paddy fields, talking and laughing with younger women and men

Young women write letters, one of which is to the author's father who is serving in the front line. (Cuts to men reading letters in trenches)
