Battle of the Somme on Glow TV

Battle of the Somme | Glow 

Join live on Thursday 10th November at 10.30am from the Imperial War Museum to find out more about the Battle of the Somme which took place 100 years ago.

This year is the 100th anniversary of the Battle of the Somme- one of bloodiest conflicts of the First World War and subject of the world’s first full-length war documentary, filmed in 1916. In the first three months of its release the film was seen by around 20 million people in Britain and Ireland, informing and challenging the public with its images of warfare and changing the way both cinema and film was perceived.

In the Glow TV event we will we shall be showing excerpts from this iconic film, accompanied by an 8 minute background piece produced by Dr Toby Haggith from the Imperial War Museum, followed by a live Q&A session with Dr Haggith. This will help pupils prepare for Letters Home, this year’s competition run by Poppyscotland, which asks pupils to write a letter home as if from the trenches of The Somme.
