I found this practically by accident.
I was looking on YouTube for docs on WWI, typed in the Great War, and this popped up. It is an eighteen hour long BBC documentary, featuring Sir Michael Redgrave as the narrator, and Sir Ralph Richardson as Sir Douglas Haig.
You really get the feeling that Ken Burns most certainly could have seen this somehow when he was a youngster, or when he went to college, because it is pretty much the complete foundation for his style.
I am five episodes in, out of twenty-six total, and it is great stuff. Highly recommended.
