The Great War

Published on 16th July 2017 by

An epic 26 episode documentary series on the First World War, narrated by legendary British actor Michael Redgrave. The 1964 series was a co-production between the BBC, the Imperial War Museum, CBC, and ABC, and it was produced to mark the 50th anniversary of the start of the war. The series was the first to feature contributions from military veterans, many of whom were only in their late 60’s or early 70’s.

Each episode is around 40 minutes long with successive blocks of episodes dedicated to a particular year of the war (e.g. episodes 1 to 6 cover 1914 which was the first year of the war), we currently have all 26 episodes available to watch here on Documentary Vine, navigate them via the numbered tabs beneath the video player or by using the episode list below.
