Beyond every battle there is a family story. Find yours at

A military historian and an investigative filmmaker travel around the world in search of lost war remnants and forgotten artifacts, revealing untold stories about what they find on the battlefield or in museum collections. Through their investigation and family history research, they recount the human side of these stories, and reunite family members with these found objects.

In “The Names Below Vimy” our hosts travel to the iconic WWI battlefield of Vimy Ridge, one of Canada's most decisive battles in the World War I. While exploring the underground "subways" used during the battle, they uncover the signatures men left on their way to the front lines and help one son truly appreciate the journey his father made 100 years prior.
