A really good and moving depiction of life and death in the Great War, it really brought home the dreadful conditions and carnage, aided by the recorded verbal descriptions by some of those that served there.

For those that missed it on Sunday, it's only available on iPlayer until 11:05pm on Sunday.

Yes, very moving indeed.

Unfortunately I had some trouble with the audio but what I could make out brought home the tremendous achievement of converting a somewhat unfit civilian into a pretty impressive fighting machine in just 6 weeks; the disillusionment with the actuality of war and yet the satisfaction of the camaraderie of the front.

The waste of life was so painful. And yet we continue to pursue wars....
