"I want 2014 to be remembered for our national commemoration of all those who served on the battlefield and on the Home Front," said BBC chief Tony Hall.
"And a chance for us all to learn something new about a war we think we know well."
The season will include 130 newly commissioned programmes, spanning almost 2,500 hours....
