Britain's Boy Soldiers: In the British army in World War I, an estimated 250,000 soldiers were actually underage, some as young as 14 and 15. Interviews with the few survivors reveal how these teenagers came to fight - and some to die - for their country and how the government turned a blind eye. A 'Secret History' programme for Channel 4, made by Testimony Films. The programme told the story of the hundreds of thousands of lads who joined the British Army under age during The Great War. The programme won 'Best Network Documentary' at the 2004 RTS Awards.- Written by Me
