5.0 out of 5 stars Informative, interesting, a worthy effort, 15 May 2006
This review is from: 1914 - 1918 : The Great War And The Shaping Of The 20th Century [DVD] (DVD)
1914-18 went a long way to updating the first full documentary of the Great War, itself taking that name as its title. Engaging from the outset, the series attempts to relate the events of the war, not in any kind of brash, modern sense, but calmly, factually, through the controlled narrative of Dame Judi Dench.

Aided by the resources of literature, poetry, photography and film, the war assumes a relavance in one's mind, providing a sure explanation to the war, the best that one can hope for without studying the period oneself. Effective as a condemnation of war, it provides an accessible serialisation of the conflict, one which should, in my opinion, have been repeated on British television.

If you have any interest in documentaries of this nature, then 1914-18 will not fail in its attempt to move you, and impress upon you the magnitude of that first global struggle.
