Part one of two. The political commentator presents never-before-seen colour footage of the Spanish Civil War, vividly recounting a war hitherto seen only in black and white.
Recommended

Review

Rating: 3 out of 5.

Our knowledge of the Spanish Civil War of 1936-9 is fairly limited in this country, which seems embarrassing given how bloody, tragic, and divisive it was.

This two-parter, originally shown in Spain, brings colour to archive footage to tell the neglected story of the Spanish Civil War, with Michael Portillo – whose own father was exiled to Britain after supporting the Republican side — offering authoritative narration.
