In this documentary from the BBC, historian and aerial specialist Ben Robinson traces the first air attacks on Britain by the Zeppelin. From Norfolk to London, Robinson investigates how Germany’s aim – to intimidate the population and bring swift victory – failed. Told through aerial perspective, archive film, expert analysis, 3D graphics, and first person accounts (including that of a 102-year-old lady who still remembers the attacks!).

A nice, light documentary from BBC Four and well worth a watch!
