Associate Professor Fiona Graham uses conversational interview methods to create a narrative to understand the physical locations of World War One, with access to French battlefields on the Battle of the Somme.
This film aims to educate by following a young |British tourist in conversation with Colin Winn, battlefield historian and tunnelling expert.
Directed by Graham with camera operator Paul Ottey, the film creates a new perspective of the battle from specific locations from the first day of the battle in 1916.
The aim is to bring history alive and to the classroom and museums to educate using film narratives and image to support traditional history texts and narrative forms.
