The Spanish Civil War, Documentary Series (All Episodes)

For those of you interested in modern history and politics, you may struggle to find a documentary series as good as this on the Spanish Civil War, from Granada T.V., circa 1983.  I’ve included links to all six episodes below.  The Spanish Civil War is now seen by some as the prelude to the Second World War, being the first major conflict against fascism.  Incidentally, I recommend George Orwell’s Homage To Catalonia, as an excellent first-hand account of the fighting and politics of the civil war.

Episode 1: Prelude To Tragedy

Episode 2: Revolution, Counter-Revolution and Terror

Episode 3: Battleground for Idealists

Episode 4: Franco and the Nationalists

Episode 5: Inside the Revolution

Episode 6: Victory and Defeat
