WW 2 Documentary from the 1970s
Posted by ugamodels on Tuesday, June 27, 2017 10:03 PM

 

Does anyone remember a documentary series in the 1970s about WW II that had really cool theme music and a lead in with images of maps and a set of dividers. I know this is not much to go on, but does anyone have a memory of the title and who produced it? I don't even remember if it was public television or commercial. 

FYI, not The World At War narrated by Sir Laurence Olivier.

That was from the 50's... The only 70s era documentary show I remember aside from The World at War was "GI Diary. But I don't recall the opening at all. Everything else that I remember watching then was older, 60s or 50s vintage.

Does anyone remember the music and intro/transition I am thinking of? I suppose the US could have gotten a different version, and it is actually The World At War? I think I remember it having more of a strategy or large scale view than World at W a r.

Gosh, totally forgot about that one. It was a PBS series and an excellent one.

Yeah, narrated by Tim Piggot-Smith though I may have miss-spelled that. I probably threw people off with the wrong decade. Anyway I ordered the set from the usual place.
