With the aid of hundreds of amazing archived 3D images of the Great War which chronicle WW1 from start to finish and breathe new life into the story, TONY ROBINSON'S WORLD WAR I allows modern audiences to see the war in a completely new way.

The series will begin with Robinson visiting a Berlin Kaiserpanorama show, where he will explain the stereoscope 3D process and uses it to show Europe (in 3D) before the war.
