The Great War Dairy (also, alternatively known as 14, Diaries of the Great War) is British documentary series that aired on the BBC. The series looks back at the events of the first World War though a variety of both hard world data, facts and the occasional dramatically acted recreation, using actors portraying historical figures. The series is markedly different from a variety of other war time docu-dramas in that it focuses more on the life and times of the "little people" rather than on just the political machinations behind the war and the battles of the continental clash themselves.

In the records of the young Cossack Marina Yurlova, the Austrian farmer Karl Kasser and the children Yves Congar and Elfriede Kuhr, who are experiencing the outbreak of war at home, there is little room for jubilant patriotism. The episode describes how everyday life collapsed with the beginning of the war, together with the inflammatory speeches of a teacher and the heroic portrayals of the first days of the war.
