Presented by Dan and Peter Snow, without commenting on content which was mainly WW1, at least the national broadcaster marked the anniversary this month.

if you missed it you can listen again for the next 7 days and make up your own mind.

I listened earlier.
It was not aimed at folk like us on the GWF but at a national audience. As a result, I thought it a bit simplistic, but it did mention the evolution of the air war, the development of bombing, the importance of artillery spotting, and the awful life expectancy during Bloody April.
Good to hear the national broadcaster transmitting such a programme.
