BBC One has unveiled a new trailer for new powerful five-part WW1 drama, The Passing Bells written by Tony Jordan (Hustle, Life on Mars).
The drama sees the conflict of the First World War unfold through the eyes of two very ordinary young men, Thomas and Michael, played by Paddy Gibson (What Richard Did) and Jack Lowden (The Tunnel, Wolf Hall) respectively.
Over five chronological years The Passing Bells follows their lives, as they grow up, lose friends and find love amid the horrors of the war. Back home, their families and loved ones anxiously await news from the front.
The Passing Bells will air on BBC One as part of their WW1 Centenary programming and was filmed in Poland with a cast of young British and German actors play their supporting battalions.
