WWI’s Se­cret Shame: Shell Shock 9pm, BBC Two

The Guardian - The Guide - - Audio -

De­spite of­fi­cial ef­forts to deny its ex­is­tence, shell shock af­fected thou­sands of sol­diers dur­ing 1914-18. In a fine doc­u­men­tary that’s never more pow­er­ful than when the vet­er­ans them­selves speak, Dan Snow traces the his­tory of com­bat-in­duced post-trau­matic stress dis­or­der in the cen­tury since.
