Documentary Description

Narrated by Leo McKern, this classic documentary was made to mark the 60th anniversary of the Somme. It is showing its age a little, and perhaps plays up the disenchantment and artistic aspects rather more than would be the case were it made today. Nonetheless it is compelling viewing. Programme for the 60th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme, in which Leo McKe rn Walks the fields of Picardy and retells the story of the battle, with the letters, diaries and memories of men who took part.
