Episode Summary

The first of two specials marking the centenary of the outbreak of World War I. Fiona Bruce travels with a small group of experts and visitors to the poignant Thiepval Memorial to the Missing of the Somme to hear family stories linked to the conflict. Amongst the accounts and objects featured are pictures of horses sent to war painted by a doctor serving on the frontline, bronze sculptures of troops modelled from trench clay, a trunk of poignant fragments representing the life and death of a German soldier, and objects from one of the first women to treat wounded soldiers evacuated from battle. Fiona Bruce also meets a 101-year-old lady who recalls hiding under school desks as a child during one of the first bombing raids on Britain.moreless
