Episode Summary

EDIT
Zeppelin: The First Blitz
AIRED:
Known as 'Iron Thunderstorms', the Zeppelin bombing raids of the First World War brought a new style of warfare directly to the British public. By autumn 1916, a wave of panic had spread across London and the South East, hundreds of thousands of residents fled the city, many sought shelter deep underground and over 1,500 people were killed in the attacks. These horrific bombing raids ushered in a new type of warfare that would become the defining feature of 20th century combat. Timewatch looks at the effect on the British psyche of the first-ever Zeppelin raid in 1915 on the town of Great Yarmouth in Norfolk, and maps in detail – using first-hand testaments and archive – how the Germans waged their first airborne terror campaign on British civilians.moreless
