The Battle of Ancre and the Advance of the Tanks is a unique record of a terrible conflict: the final battle of the Somme offensive. Filmed in the midst of battle on the front-line at great risk to the cameraman, this silent film caused a sensation on its release in 1917. Now, in this special documentary, Dan Snow tells the story of that battle, using the newly restored film to cast a fresh light on these dramatic events.

A far better film, in my view is the BBC's drama documentary "The Somme, from Defeat to Victory". This is not only a modern (excellent) re-enactment of the battle, but also contains some 1916 re-enactment archive film as well (including the winning of a VC).
If it's good archive film you're after (but not just of the Somme), I would recommend the IWM film "Flashback: The First World War". This little gem is a collection of 2 minute clips of various aspects of WW1 (including the birth of the RAF and the death of the Red Baron).
I however felt that there could have been more detail and explanation about the film that was a central feature of the documentary, especially such points as how they tracked down the locations in the film etc. thus only 4 stars.
