Chris,

I noticed this coment on the other webb site;

"newly released film footage of ww1 reworked by Peter Jackson and called They Shall Not Grow Old will be televised on the 11/11/2018? Also is it going to be available for purchase at a later date? Please correct me if I've been miss informed about it being televised.Sorry if this is in the wrong section on the forum. "

"Monday BBC4 7.30pm, What Do Artists Do All Day? According to the blurb, is a behind the scenes look at how Peter Jackson created his WW1 documentary."

And

"The radio times show that it will be on BBC 2 on Sunday at 21.30hrs , it should be on BBC 1 "

While I can't see these you maybe able to check them out?

Cheers

S.B

Was made by Dr. Friedrich Fülleborn during a punitive Expedition of Premierlieutnant Phillipp Engelhardt into the Songea area in 1897.
Engelhardt impressed the Ungoni by demonstrating his firepower against shields

I've made a page on my website about machine guns in the colonies. Much of the information is from you guys in this thread, thank you all. Please let me know of any mistakes you see- I'm sure I've made a few...
