Netflix has announced two history documentaries, ‘Einstein And The Bomb’, ‘World War II: From The Frontlines’ along with new Jack Whitehall series ‘Fatherhood With My Father.’

Einstein and The Bomb is a feature documentary from BBC Studios which explores Albert Einstein’s complex relationship with Hitler, Germany, the atom bomb and its devastating aftermath in Japan.

With a mix of archive and dramatisations, the film will explore key points in Einstein’s life, and how his work changed the course of history forever.

Everything Einstein says in the film is taken from words he said or wrote in his life, “bringing us close to the greatest mind of the 20th century as he faces the greatest evil the world has ever known.”

Executive Producers are James Van Der Pool and Andrew Cohen and the director is Anthony Philipson.

World War II: From the Frontlines is a “moving and innovative” six part documentary series from Fremantle’s 72 Films which “plunges the viewer directly onto the frontlines of WW2 in a new way.”

Rare WW2 footage, much of it shot by the soldiers themselves, has been restored, colourised and sound designed to “create an immersive cinematic experience.”

The series will be released later this year.

It is narrated by John Boyega. Executive Producers are David Glover and Mark Raphael and series director is Rob Coldstream.

In four part series, Fatherhood With My Father, Jack Whitehall is about to become a father for the first time and, with his father Michael, will travel the world, “examining what fatherhood means across the globe, discussing the Dad that Michael is and the one that Jack wants to be.”

Th production company is Jackpot Productions and the executive producers are Richard Ackerman, Jack Whitehall and Michael Whitehall. The director is Paul Taylor and series producer is James Fidler.
