The introduction of rationing in January 1940 ensured that food became a central concern for the British during the Second World War. Here, Richard Farmer investigates the cinema in wartime Britain and demonstrates the cultural impact that rationing had on both government propaganda and commercial feature films. Analysing films, radio programmes and the Ministry of Food's Food Flash films, he proposes that their images of the common diet helped construct and contest a community of 'food companions'.
