Did anyone see the BBC prog - The First World War One from Above - shown last Sunday ?

It was a film shot in 1919 from an airship showing the devastation left by the war in France and Belgium.

Many of us have probably seen picture and films of towns and cities ruined, probably to the point where it seems almost natural and expected from a war.

But this film includes aerial shots to the open battle fields, trench lines etc.

To me the most shocking thing was the number of shell craters, thousands and thousands, almost no ground untouched. It really must have been pure hell.

I think the program is still available on the BBC iplayer, should anyone also want to be visually shocked at what they went through.


Available on iPlayer now, Jeremy Paxman's four part series on WW1. Originally broadcast in 2014, I believe. Somehow missed it first time round - watched it all yesterday, really excellent and very well presented in a totally objective manner.

How's this for the lattest in quadcopters?

I wonder if you need a motor-bike license or an aircraft license?

Q: Which part of building a new traditional balsa aeroplane do you enjoy the most?

 Research & choosing the model
 Building the fuselage

 All of it!
 None of it. I'd rather someone else did it!
