Blimey! Our little ol' World War One video just hit 1 million views on YouTube!

We've received fantastic feedback from teachers, parents and students all over the world. The script has even been learnt by heart and performed by students at their schools.

Back in the summer of 2014 we filmed this video to tie in with the anniversary of the Great War. We wanted to push our production values as far as possible and worked with re-enactors and a pyrotechnics expert for the first time.

It was one of those production days when everything seemed to click. I vividly remember watching back the first rush with the crew huddled around a monitor in the crew's van. The moment the camera panned passed the map and onto the Western Front as the pyrotechnics fired was staggering...none of us could quite believe how good it looked!

It was a rather difficult script to write and I'm pleased that the majority of viewers have felt that the tonality is appropriate for such a tragic and damaging event in our history.

Thank you very much for watching!
