Neil, Goodwood. 26 April 2004

This two disc set features altogether six 40+ episodes dealing with different aspects of WWI. Narrated by Kenneth Brannagh, the colour footage is interspersed with interviews of real-life WWI veterans and other various historical experts. Although World War 1 in Colour is heavily slanted to the British point of view of the proceedings, it still makes for very interesting watching. The six episodes deal with the start of the war, the war at sea, the air war, the war in the Eastern Front and the final Allied Victory.

Presented in wide screen the colour process gives an interesting dimension to watching footage of the war we have mostly only ever seen in black and white. The colour process is not perfect, and a lot of the footage has a slight water colour look to them. It also would seem the computer experts did not make a lot of effort to remove the scratches on the reels they restored. Some scenes are more clear than others it has to be said. A number of the scenes are also re-used quite often in the series such as those of artillery firing, soldiers going "Over the Top" and so on. Still there is enough unique restored scenes to make for this.

Although World War 1 in Colour is not a comprehensive guide to the WWI, it is still well worth the watch. If you have ever wanted to know more about WWI then you cannot go wrong with the World War 1 in Colour DVD.
