World War One in Colour - "Blood in the Air"

Recommended Posts

Just found these parts of the documentary "WW1 in colour - Blood in the Air"

Through the coloured film, it got closer to me in time somehow.

There are other parts about the war on the ground and at sea; search YouTube for them.

This may have been posted before, but then I missed it.

 

Enjoy watching it, living in peace.

I have this series on DVD. They did a good job at colouring the old film with the help of modern technology. Too bad real colour photographs of WW1 era are so extremely rare. Black and white just isn't the same as looking at colours, no matter how good and clear the pic is otherwise.

There aren't common, but there exists, probably more in private archives than spread in the Internet.

This a site that have a few WWI color photographs.

 

I remembered also to have seen some great material in several BBC documentaries about the photographs taken by Albert Khan around the beginning of the century. There a some from WWI.

The photographs taken did not using a color film, but used another technique with lumpy potatoe.

These autochromes are really fantastic. They are a real window to another "time".

Von Paulus, thanks for the link. I saw a documentary series about Albert Kahn's colour photographs last year. Sometimes, but not too often, something good like that is shown on TV.

 

The French were the pioneers of colour photography (and photography in general), so if you see a colour pic from WW1, it's most likely taken by them.

 

And those autochromes have fantastic colours.

Wow! Thank you very much, von Paulus, for the links to Albert Kahn.

I see those pictures for the first time, except for the WW1 pictures, which I always

had believed to be coloured by retouche. Beautiful! A window in time indeed!

Ooooohhhh, you can be nasty, Widow! :qt:

 

But indeed, Hasse Wind, sometimes the word wars are as nerve wrecking as the ones with bullets.

Well, I've tried all the links regarding Blood In The Air and the one that has better color dirol.gif . The better color was interesting and as previously noted, the "Blood In The Air" has been removed. So I am now searching the internet for it or any other footage of interest.

It still seems to be there under this link in 5 parts.

If anyone is having a problem finding a good youtube downloader that works well, the one in the link below seems ok. I am downloading these 5 bits now for my MP3 player that also plays short video clips. It gets the MP4 versions as well as the FLV.

Blood in the air is still available on youtube, indeed. Realplayer can also be used for downloading from youtube, but I'm sure the above mentioned software has far more possibilities.

Still not sure how to save a video on YouTube.. I right click and there are no links to save?

 

Did you guys visit Totenschlacht's War video site (click)? Pretty impressive.

Hi Rob,

 

Download and install the latest version of Firefox (if you don't already have it).

 

Install this addon: https://addons.mozil...efox/addon/3006

 

Works like a charm.

 

Cheers,

 

James

 

Wow, thanks, will try it out this evening. I use Firefox, so just need the add on. :good:
