WWI - Videos & Movies

        These videos have been selected according to their historical content relevance and the full force of their images. They are for you to see and watch, don´t give up if you don´t understand the telling contents: the documentary films weren´t selected mainly taking account of the English level.
    Anyway, most of them are not difficult, especially the BBC´s ones.
    The WWI in Colour episodes enable the subtitle option which could provide you a helpful support with some key words (but these transcriptions could contain some mistakes).
