Apocalypse: World War I
Ep: 4 "Anger"
This five-part series was produced using over 500 hours of archival footage unearthed after exhaustive research in archives, film libraries and private collections around the world. Much of the footage is previously unseen. It has been meticulously restored and colourized to create a powerful, evocative look at this tragic period in world history. How did such a cruel and far-reaching conflict occur? How did men and women endure the atrocity for four long years? The series takes us to the battlefields, inside the minds of those who governed, and to the heart of life behind the frontlines. Civilians and soldiers, anonymous or well-known - the series bears witness to their unimaginable suffering and their struggle to survive in this time of uninhibited violence: as heroic as it was barbaric.

Fury
The assassination of Franz Ferdinand in 1914 set in motion events that would ruin entire countries and bring down several empires. This five-part series tells the story of World War I, a conflict that killed 10 million soldiers, 9 million civilians and left 21 million people wounded. (1 of 5)
Fear
The war goes global and large-scale bloodshed seems unavoidable. The Canadians, Italians, Bulgarians, Australians and Algerians have all entered the conflict. The Germans stop the Russian advance into Prussian territory while the German advance is stopped by the French in the Battle of the Marne. (2 of 5)
Hell
From the trenches in France to the gates of the Eastern world, the whole of Europe is on fire. By July 1916, five million men have already died. Warfare has become industrial and chemical as fighting reaches an unprecedented level of violence. But for the leaders, the human and material cost is so high that the enemy must pay and the war must go on. (3 of 5)
Anger
On the home front, anger seethes as hunger stalks the population. Wartime misery has penetrated every home, affecting every aspect of daily life. On the battlefield, the Germans commit a strategic error that changes the course of the conflict and causes the United States to enter the war. (4 of 5)
Deliverance
With the Americans ready to fight, the Allied Forces meet with victory after victory, and territories taken at the beginning of the war are liberated. (5 of 5).
