Centenary (1 Viewer)


And in the end...
"The lamps are going out all over Europe, we shall not see them lit again in our life-time", BritishForeign SecretarySir Edward Grey may have remarked on the eve of the declaration.

There has been a lot in the media on the lead up to the centenary of the first world war here in the UK.
Radio 4 has been doing a lot. I listened to this yesterday in one go.
It's interesting but not a broad sweep, confines itself to events in the drawing rooms, embassy rooms and cabinet offices across Europe.

Posted these links if it's of interest; the link in the second paragraph should let you in to the broadcasts.


This one is some cartoons (graphic art) done fot the lead up, clicking on each box enlarges them.
