CWGC Statement in relation to the Unremembered Documentary
The CWGC has been saddened by media articles that ran yesterday in advance of a Channel Four documentary which claims ‘Britain dishonoured its African First World War dead’. The Commission’s involvement in the programme amounted only to one interview, the subject of which was obfuscated. Instead of engaging with us in a dialogue about their research, as we asked, the programme makers have refused to disclose their subject matter, their claims, their sources, or discuss the allegations off camera, or even to show the film to the CWGC ahead of its transmission.
