En Dirigeable sur les champs de bataille is the name of a 78-minute film (in Bologna presented a 20 minute extract) recently, we are told in a BBC film, discovered in the archives of the French army in Paris.

The pilot was Jacques Trolley de Prévaux. His cameraman was Lucien Lesaint. In August and September 1919 they filmed the remains of the Western front, from Nieuwpoort, on the North Sea in Belgium, to the Swiss Alps.
