With a forward by Tim Honor, founder of Piccolo Press in Nairn.

Whilst in the trenches in 1916, Fred Roberts discovers a printing press in working order.  Helped by ex-printer Sergeant Harris along with his friend Jack Pearson as his assistant, he sets up the Wipers Times - the name coming from the soldiers' pronunciation of the town Ypres. They go on to produce 23 issues of a satirical magazine.

This BBC film tells this incredible story, and founder of Piccolo Press in Nairn, Tim Honor will present a short introduction and explanation of how his own printer was used in the making of the film.
