World War One: Art was used as a weapon says expert

As remembrance services are held across the country, next year will mark 100 years since the outbreak of World War One.

A series of events and exhibitions marking the conflict's anniversary will be held, including a four-year programme at museums in Wales.

Some of Britain's most moving poetry emerged from the darkest days of WW1, such as Siegfried Sassoon reading Died of Wounds.

Oliver Fairclough, keeper of art at National Museum Wales, spoke to Vaughan Roderick.
