Epic 18+ hour series.

Quote One of the BBC's most important and ambitious series ever, The Great War was to be the definitive film account of the world-shattering events of 1914-1918.

For 26 weeks it ran in grainy black & white and was a sensation. For half a year, pubs thinned out for Wednesday evening. With the rounded tones of Sir Michael Redgrave and Sir Ralph Richardson as the narrators, and previously unseen archival footage, The Great War was a television phenomenon.

Good documentary and compliment to the World at War - I found the interview segments to be particularly interesting.

Nowadays interviews aren't possibile any more. The last WWI-veteran died last year.

I hate to detract from her veteran status but she only worked in the officers' mess... :D

Hey, if I was her, I'd rather get assigned to the trenches with mustard gas, machine guns, and barbed wire. That'd be a lot safer :) Those WWI officers were nuts, they alone were responsible for 3/4s of all casualties during the war with their medieval tactics and their utter lunacy. Just being around those officers, listening to their so-called "tactics" and "philosophy" would surely cause brain damage among those who had the misfortune to be there. This lady was lucky to survive, I'll tell you that much :D

Well, to be honest, I'm just glad to be sitting here in my apartment in 2011 - without the need to go to war :D

hello chicomarx. unfortunately I can't upload photobucket's pictures of the Bleriot airplane... :/
By the way aren't other pictures of airplanes/aircrafts in this series?

For Photobucket if you left click on the picture you get the full size picture rather than the 99% preview. With the full image you then have the option to save the image when you right click.

No other planes so far but I've only reached early 1915 (episode 6).
