Since 23 September 2016, Private and Sergeant Parsons have been filming with “Orbis”. Orbis have been producing educational and informative video footage of the Somme region of the Western Front for schools. As a result, Private and Sergeant Parsons have had the pleasure of working with the acclaimed historian, author and archeologist, Peter Barton

Many iconic locations were included in the filming process. It was a sheer honor, to be given the opportunity of illustrating the story of the brave men who fought over this hallowed earth one hundred years ago. A sheer pleasure also, to work with the only man who can tell the tale of those men and do them justice; Peter Barton.

The patience and constant professionalism from the crew whilst filming, has made this a very tasteful and gracious enterprise. When production is complete, the end result will undoubtedly be respectful, reflective and refined - a true resource for any history department, made all the more so with the knowledge that Orbis has ensured that no corners have been cut or stone unturned in the production of this work.
