TV Fact #311 – August 30th, 2015:

“The World at War” (1973–1974), a 26-episode British television documentary series chronicling the events of the Second World War, has, since production was completed, attracted acclaim and is now regarded as a landmark in British television history. In fact, producer Jeremy Isaacs was considered ahead of his time in resurrecting studies of military history and leading to Isaac winning a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Documentary Achievements (Cultural) in 1974 as the show’s producer.

However, the series was also criticized for not mentioning that the UK broke its pact with Poland, and bombed Germany first on the night of 3rd September 1939 with the RAF having bombed German cities every night from the 11th of May 1940, four months before the Blitz started on London.
