For all of us,when we think about ww1,we imagine everything in black and white.This excellent documentary change this for good. The picture is not perfect,but is very good.The narrator(Kenneth Branagh)is excellent,and the music is epic.The details about the battles,the weapons and the statistics,the coloured footage and the interviews from the veterans,all combined together in every chapter works fine.When you watch this you never get tired. Too bad that the veterans are only British,i would also like to see and hear an interview from the other side,but that's OK.There are not so many details about the politics or a prologue about the era before the war. Great job,this is one of the best doc about ww1
