Who we are

As a part of ERA’s commitment to helping licence holders make the best use of material available to them, we have decided to start highlighting our ‘top pick’ each week. We’re hoping to reveal multiple educational uses for a single episode, series, or film with enough time to act as a ‘heads up’ for teachers to be able to record or access the material.

Voices of the First World War returns to BBC Radio 4 this week, with a series of five programmes. They will cover topics including the Somme, the introduction of tank warfare, and the treatment of British prisoners of war.

From the BBC:

Dan Snow brings together the sound archive collections of the Imperial War Museums and the BBC for the first time to tell the story of World War I through the voices of those who were there.

Voices will run every day this week at 1:45pm on BBC Radio 4 and would give students a uniquely personal account of the impact of the First World War.
