Ad of the Day: BBC - Pack Up Your Troubles

This promising trail for the BBC's coverage of the centenary of World War I suggests much excellent programming lies ahead.

With David Cameron proposing a "celebration" of this year's centenary and seeking to draw parallels with the London Olympics in order to generate a bit of pre-election feelgood factor, our government is going to do what it can to avoid a thoughtful reflection provoked by this most poignant of anniversaries.

Promising BBC trailer? Have your sick bags ready for nostalgic war porn. "Pack up your troubles" was aimed at maintaining morale, recruiting for the forces, or defending Britain's war aims ( all of which had nothing to do with freedom or democracy. 40% of men didn't have the vote nether mind women, and the Indian soldiers shown were never intended to have democracy in the UK empire.) Prefer this version from Oh What a lovely war :) http://search.yahoo.com/search?p=+%22Oh!+What+A+Lovely+War%22+pack+up+yo...
