Anneca Posted 10 August , 2014 Share Posted 10 August , 2014 A reminder of The People's Story broadcast in just over an hour from now: Quote: "One hundred years after the outbreak of the First World War, this dramatised documentary series uses the original diaries, letters, and memoirs of the men and women who were caught up in a conflict which would change their lives and their country forever. Reg Evans was a cockney lad who was one of the first to volunteer to fight. He turned out to be a hero in the trenches and his journey is told through the moving letters he sent to his mother. Alan Lloyd was an upper class young man from Birmingham, who joined the army in the same month he got married. His letters to his new wife from the battlefields of Ypres reveal the shock of a generation facing the very worst horrors of war. Dorothy Lawrence was determined to find a role for herself. She set off under her own steam for the trenches, where she worked undercover as a war correspondent. Each individual's story is made all the more powerful as every word is real".
