The BBC and PBS have released a first look at upcoming World War II drama World on Fire.

The seven-hour period drama spans the first year of the war and its story is split between multiple main characters in a variety of locations, including Manchester, Warsaw, Berlin and Paris. The idea is to show the impact of World War II through the eyes of different ordinary people around the world.
