As a major city, and one of Britain's two main Atlantic ports, Bristol's role in the First World War was significant: 55,000 of her men went to war, of whom 6,000 would never return, while her brave seamen defied U-Boats to bring in vital food supplies. Bristol also produced numerous vital products for the war effort, from cigarettes and chocolate to aircraft, munitions and mustard gas, and women began to take on what was previously seen as 'men's work'. Bristol also looked after 2,000 Belgian refugees, it was home to seventeen war hospitals and more than 1,000 POWs were held at five camps in the area. Red Cross Parcels were a Bristol invention and Portishead-born Fred Weatherly wrote 'Roses of Picardy', one of the most famous songs of the conflict.

THE GREATEST PHARAOHS PART 1 This is the story of Ancient Egypt told through the reigns of the most powerful kings in history. From the first pharaoh, Narmer, who unified Upper and Lower Egypt in 3150 BC, to the brilliance of Imhotep who constructed the first Egyptian pyramid for his King Djoser, we chronicle the lives of the men and women who commanded this ancient civilisation.
