Idris Elba narrates and exec produced this 4-part Nat Geographic series about people of color who fought during World War Two.  The series sees the Luther star focus on three unsung heroes per episode who have previously not been given the spotlight via premium dramatization, character portraits and archive. Elba, whose grandfather served in World War Two, will highlight roles played in Dunkirk, Pearl Harbour and D-Day, as he reveals how the war experiences of people of color directly inspired post-war movements for freedom that swept the globe.
