Brothers in Arms: The Pals Army of World War One
UTV, 10.15pm

"We've never been out of England, we've never seen nowt," said the late George Littlefair, recalling his First World War experience. "As I tell you, we were raw country lads, never seen nowt. Aye, that was how we felt. It wasn't damn long before we were learning, I'll tell you." This new documentary tells the story of the young British men who signed up for the army with their friends and fought together on the Western Front in the First World War. Brothers in Arms: The Pals Army of World War One brings alive the stories of life in the trenches through rare archive footage and interviews with veterans who fought at the Somme, facing the German artillery, mustard gas and trench foot in horrendous conditions.
