First World War in five minutes

I realise the whole world is suffering from Great War fatigue by now, the centenary band-wagon having been toppled by a surfeit of jumpers.

At least my contribution to the overload has brevity on its side. If you have 5 more minutes to spare on matters 1914-18, here's a neat summation of the conflict.

Script by me, narration by Dan Snow, animation by Mark Boxall, the whole produced by Max Gadney and After the Flood.

More films to come through the centenary year.
