“Everything is more intense...
Like your brain’s taking it all in, knowing that it might be the last cloud or the last blade of grass you’ll ever see...”
An epic historical drama spanning the five years of the First World War, as seen through the eyes of two ordinary young soldiers: one British, one German.
Set against battles on the iconic Western front alongside the lesser explored but equally epic struggles in the East, the story charts Tommy and Michael’s coming of age on opposite sides of Europe’s bloody battlefields. They each find love, friendship and courage amidst the horror of ‘the war to end all wars.’
Scripted by award winning writer Tony Jordan (Life On Mars, Hustle), The Passing Bells is part of the BBC’s commemorations on the centenary of WWI, a conflict that cost millions of lives and re-shaped the map of the world.
