Documentary

The three-part documentary 'Berlin 1945' currently broadcast by BBC among others is not bad, but I suspect some of the footage shown is just stock footage and not really from the Berlin battle. Attached two screenshots. Any thoughts?

Most all docu.about WW2 has a fair share of unrelated stock footage in them. A film historian in an interview on TCM many years ago said that most all film scenes attributed to actual WW1 battles were stock Hollywood shot , IOW BS all the way..

I couldn't find a full episode of 'Berlin 1945' and I had to watch every little piece, whatever I could find on youtube or on forums. I think the directing part is included, it's hard to get the complete episode from the actual scenes without the involvement of the acting.
