Program Notes

World War One is an American documentary television series that was shown on CBS during the 1964–1965 television season to commemorate the fiftieth anniversary of the start of the war. The series, which was produced by CBS News and featured 26 half-hour episodes, was narrated by Robert Ryan.

Rather than use sound effects to simulate combat noises, the series used original incidental music written by Morton Gould, performed by the CBS Symphony Orchestra under the direction of Alfredo Antonini.
