Stalingrad, Manchester

A building site near the Mancunian Way was used to film re-enactments of the fighting in Stalingrad in the Second World War.

Jez, who has already spent three years making the series for the History Channel, said: “We have filmed in Stalingrad itself, but we were delighted to be given the opportunity to re-create battle scenes here.

“The remains of old factory buildings and rubble provided the right backdrop for a very authentic setting.”
