Carrie's War tv adaptations

It's interesting to compare the first episode of the original BBC children's tv serial Carrie's War (1974) with the remake released in 2004

What do you think of the change in approach? Why do you think they are so different.. what are the messages in each?
How does the narration differ and what effect does this have?
What do you think of the characterisation in the two versions?

What do you think in general?
Enjoy!
