1976 BBC documentary on the Battle of the Somme

DocumentaryNarrated by Leo McKern, this classic documentary was made to mark the 60th anniversary of the Somme. 70 minutes. It is showing its age a little, and perhaps plays up the disenchantment and artistic aspects rather more than would be the case were it made today. Nonetheless it is compelling viewing.
