The British Broadcasting Service, otherwise known in America as the BBC, is going to devote a considerable amount of time, effort, and money to commemorate the First World War. This will create a stunning body of work that will make a noble effort towards understanding what happened and maybe, just maybe, help clarify the part that no one gets--the why part.
Why World War I happened is a subject of almost endless debate. Was it really a cousins war? A war of timetables and mobilization? A war unleashed by decades of militarism and nationalism? The BBC should tackle this, and more.
In America, we will commemorate World War I with a Bruce Willis movie and something from the dude who does Family Guy. If that.
