On Sunday 9 November the National Museum of Ireland (Decorative Arts and History) Collins Barracks began to show Apocalypse, a five-part French television series set during World War One. Apocalypse uses archival footage to explore both the everyday live of civilians behind the lines and the experience of the war in the trenches in northern France. It also examines the lesser-known fronts of Russia, Serbia, Turkey, Palestine and the Arabian deserts. The series is screened in English, and is presented by the National Museum in partnership with the French Embassy.
