DISC ONE - Land Warfare Technology

This programme closely examines the development of land warfare and the effect it had on the conflict. From the killing power of the machine gun and the dramatic introduction of the tank to the emergence of the new terror weapon, gas, first used by the Germans with terrible effect at Ypres on the Western Front in 1915.



DISC TWO - Air Power Technology

The First World War introduced many new technologies but perhaps the most far reaching was the aeroplane. At the outbreak of war, aircraft were to play and increasingly important role in reconnaissance and range-finding for the artillery. In the latter stages of the conflict, their roles included ground attack and long-range bombing.



DISC THREE - Sea Power Technology

This programme starts with the key sea battle of WWI, The Battle of Jutland in 1916, which, although inconclusive, blunted the threat of the German fleet. We then witness submarine technology and the German blochade of Britain which nearly succeeded in forcing victory. The programme ends with a look at the aircraft carrier which made a major breakthrough in 1917 with the first deck landing.
