The Passing Bells: 'No good guys or bad guys' in WW1 drama
EastEnders and Life on Mars creator Tony Jordan's latest series is a drama to mark the centenary of World War One.
The Passing Bells follows the lives of two ordinary teenage boys - one British, one German - who enlist for a war they expect to be over in months.
He told BBC Breakfast that he wanted to avoid cliches about the conflict and to bring a fresh light on the subject to a new generation.
Episode one of The Passing Bells is broadcast on BBC One at 19:00 on Monday 3 November
