Amanda Lynsdale discusses some of what she discovered while cataloguing the extensive BBC Collection, acquired in 2012.
On 4 August 1914 the largest global conflict the world had witnessed began. We look at the role photography played in representing the ‘War to End All Wars’.
As the unsettling images of the Ukraine crisis make their way to our TV screens, Brian Liddy is reminded of the first systematically photographed conflict.
Filmed in 1915, Charles Urban’s ‘Britain Prepared’ used military footage to promote British strength and determination in the war effort during World War I.
Our collection includes these beautiful Kodachrome portraits of women in the armed forces, photographed during WWII.
Today we remember those that died on the battlegrounds of World War I and II, and all members of the armed forces who have ever given their lives in the line of duty.
