The Airships: Episode 1 – Liftoff

An Austrailian series, “The Airships” is a comprehensive series that investigates the beginings, development, and decline of airships in RL. The series is in three parts, with the above episode covering the early history of airships, including its early years, the histroy of Von Graff Zepplin, and the uses of airships during WW1. It is six episodes of about 8 minutes each, so it is a good amount of time to watch them all, but they are fascinating, even if they veer a bit away from the classic Steampunk timeframe.

The rest of the episodes are below (Blogger tends to be a bit cranky with large numbers of videos posted at one time…), so please do enjoy!
