Can't find movies anymore

Does IMDb have any info about a documentary about The Blitz that is narrated by Gavin Brocker? Could be an episode of TV serie.

The new IMDb appearance or design or what ever is so confusing. I can't find anything anymore.

Thank you @bderoes​. The Blitz: Days That Changed WWII is the very same documentary I searched in vain. Amazon.com credits Jason Williams director, but the movie itself did not credit any director. Jason Williams was listed as producer.

On Brocker's page:

https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2511874/

He has 1 Self credit for an episode of Torchwood Declassified.

A narrator is often listed under Self.

When I do a google search for your words "documentary about The Blitz that is narrated by Gavin Brocker", the first 2 results are:

Gavin Brocker - Biography - IMDb

https://www.imdb.com › name › bio
He has since appeared in all media, from the stage revival of 'Beautiful Thing' to the role of a conniving spiv in 'Foyle's War' and a strong supporting part ...

Torchwood 1.12: Captain Jack Harkness - The Millennium Effect

https://millenniumeffect.co.uk › index.php › torchwood...
Transported back to the Blitz, Jack and Tosh find themselves facing a dark secret from Jack's past, one he hoped and believed had been buried for good.

Thanks. But that does not help. I just watched that documentary in question.

Opening credits title is The Blitz: Days That Changed WWII. That may be European title, alternative title or the original title. I don't know. The documentary run 43 minutes. Is that the director's cut or an edit shorter version. I don't know. TV movie or a "real" movie. I don't know. Or an episode of TV documentary series. I don't know.

When I go to narrator Gavin Brocker's IMDb filmography page it is nowadays organised so that I can't get an comprehensive view of his works. For example TV episodes are not individually listed. Just titles of the shows. Furthermore is narrator an 'actor' or 'self'?

I have no use for ostentatious photos of Gavin Brocker nor still photos of his movies. Or 'More to explore'. Or 'Videos'. Or 'Related news'. Just proper easy to use Gavin Brocker filmography.

It sounds like you need "Text view" which in this case is located at https://www.imdb.com/name/nm2511874/filmotype/ 

You can access this via the "All topics" menu in the upper right of any name page -- it's the last entry in the "Credits" first column of links on that menu (illustration with screen-grabs are here).

Part of the problem here is that this title is simply not yet listed on IMDb. 

Hope this helps.

This text view is exactly what I so desperately needed. A compact and easy to read one glance listing of films and TV shows. Thank you once again so very very much!
