World War I from the air

In November last year I reported that the BBC was making a one-hour documentary using still and moving images of the World War I battlefields. Only a preview was available at the time: but an e-mail from reader Erik C. informed me today that the program is now on YouTube. I simply had to post it here, for the benefit of history-lovers and aviation enthusiasts alike.

The program's in four parts.

Thanks, Erik!

I had a hard time with the first video. The presenter's white knuckles kept washing out the picture!! I think he squeezed juice out of that ring around the rear cockpit.

Regardless, this looks to be a very interesting subject....
