With the first world war centenary next year, Rachel Spence looks at how artists have depicted that war – from Wilfred Owen’s contemporary poetry and Stanley Spencer’s touching murals to the satirical 1960s musical and film ‘Oh! What a Lovely War’.
Filmed by Steve Ager and Richard Topping. Produced by Griselda Murray-Brown. Additional production by Josh de la Mare.
