The Passing Bells is a five-part British-Polish television drama that was first broadcast on BBC One in 2014. The series is set during World War I and was a part of the BBC First World War centenary season.
The title of this miniseries comes from the first line of Wilfred Owen's 1917 poem, 'Anthem for Doomed Youth': "What passing-bells for these who die as cattle?" It attempts to show the innocence and misguided bravery of the extremely youthful soldiers who enlisted in World War I from the outset, having no idea what they were in for or even why.
