Presented by historian Dan Snow and produced by History Hit, Untold Stories of World War 1 looks at some of the pioneering research projects carried out by the five AHRC-funded WW1 Engagement Centres over the past four years.

Involving 26 universities and partner organisations - including the Heritage Lottery Fund & Imperial War Museum - the centres have helped hundreds of community groups to research public histories of the First World War as part of the centenary commemorations.

The projects set to feature are:

  • Research into the plays that were produced during the conflict
  • A look at the work of German photographer, Käthe Buchler, where she documented life in her hometown during the war
  • The use of large stately homes as hospitals
  • Excavation of Ballykinler military base

The full documentary will be available to watch online from Thursday, 1 November 2018.
