The project

In 2011 the Gutter Fighting DVD made two short films by World War Two close combat expert William Fairbairn publicly available.



This website gives some background to the Gutter Fighting DVD project.

The original films are in the public domain but the films on the Gutter Fighting DVD remain the property of the Gutter Fighting DVD project.

The production of each film on the Gutter Fighting DVD included subtitles developed for the project and was watermarked for copyright purposes: gutterfightingfilms appears in the top right corner of each film.

The Gutter Fighting DVD is no longer available in hard copy or as a digital download.

Digital copies of the original films are still available for a range of applications such as documentary making or marketing.
