Our World War: BBC Three drama uses head-cams and thermal imaging to recreate horror of first battle of World War One

Based entirely on the 100-year-old testimonies of the soldiers, the programme kicks off by putting viewers in among the men of the 4th Battalion of The Royal Fusiliers

The first battle of World War One has been recreated Ė in all its gory detail Ė for a new TV drama based on the true stories of those who fought on the front line.

Viewers of Our World War will follow the progress of a handful of the 80,000 British troops who, two weeks after war was declared in August 1914, found themselves locked in combat against 1million German troops in Belgium.

Based entirely on the 100-year-old testimonies of the soldiers, the BBC3 series kicks off by putting viewers in among the men of the 4th Battalion of The Royal Fusiliers Ė some of the best trained gunners in the British army.

Using modern techniques including head-cams and thermal imaging, the hour-long drama shows how woefully unprepared the men were in the face of the German onslaught at the Battle of Mons.

Despite being outnumbered more than 10 to 1, the heart-rending stories of the men involved highlights their astonishing bravery as they engage in battle with heavy losses, before being forced to make a tactical retreat.


For their acts of extraordinary courage, several of the men including Lieutenant Maurice Dease, Lance Corporal Charles Jarvis and Private Sid Godley were awarded the first Victoria Crosses of the First World War. Some of them did not make it through that first day.

The second instalment covers the issue of desertion by following a member of one of the new battalions of conscripts known as 'Pals', who survives the Battle of the Somme only to be ordered to execute one of his friends.

The final episode sees the British invent the tank Ė a weapon designed to break the stalemate and end the war after four years of combat. Using the account of one a member of the Tank Regiment it follows a crew during the Battle of Amiens in August 1918, as they pound their way across enemy territory in the hope of finally getting to go home.

The account, from the diaries of Chas Rowland, has never been made public by his family before now.
