The Great War in Colour

The BBC is putting on more for the Albert Kahn and autochrome addicts among you. This Monday BBC2 starts a three-part series The Great War in Colour: The Wonderful World of Albert Kahn, which looks at the First World War through the colour photographs in the Kahn collection. Part one is on 21 January, at 19.00. The programmes are streamed online via BBC iPlayer for one week after transmission.

  1. A question.

    Will The great war in color – 7.0pm.-Monday 28th January – be repeated in the near future?
    Time and date please if the answer is ‘ ‘yes.

    Ravishing images – invaluable historic record – just the best – congratulations.

  2. I’m nothing to do with the BBC, so I don’t merit any congratulations, and I can’t tell you when the BBC might repeat the programme. However, it is available to view online for the next week, for UK residents only, through the BBC’s iPlayer service – – which no longer requires you to download programmes but lets you see them as a live stream. It will only be there for a week, so don’t wait. If you’ve not used iPlayer before, it’s very simple – just choose the day and channel of the programme you want to see, and click to play. It’s best to have a broadband connection.
