The World At War was an iconic Thames Television series of 26 episodes first seen in the early 1970s (it was commissioned in 1969 and took four years to make). Those who saw it, remembered it. You remembered the breadth of footage from newsreels, propaganda reels, footage from on-board fighter planes, hand held in battle and many other sources.
