Originally broadcast in 1973 and narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier, 'The World at War' was produced by Thames Television over a 4 year period.
The 26-part documentary series interviewed major members of the Allied and Axis campaigns, civilian eyewitnesses, enlisted men, officers and politicians and made use of the rare colour film footage to investigate the events surrounding World War II to create what is widely agreed to be the definitive history of World War II.
The production costs were, at the time, record-breaking in the UK.
