    Synopsis:
    World War I in Colour is presented on two discs with three episodes on each disc. The modern interview clips look and sound immaculate, while the historical footage varies from very poor to quite good. Even so, the picture resolution is not helped by discarding a third of the original images and stretching what remains to widescreen. The budget spent on colourisation would have been better used to restore the often very scratchy black-and-white film, and to pay for an orchestra to rerecord the score, which is realised with a clich├ęd palette of preset electronic samples.

    Kenneth Branagh presents this six part guide to World War I. Using computer aided technology, this colour series reveals the true reality of the destruction and chaos of the war.
