Don't You Know There's a War on? : Story of the Home Front
In this collection of BBC sound-archive recordings, listeners hear what the people of the home front heard as they lived, loved, laughed and worked through the dark days of World War II, from the speeches and air-raid sirens to the humour and music that help to keep up morale. The collection also presents an oral history of ordinary lives turned upside down, as people recall wedding nights spent in the Underground, couples falling in love while the bombs fell who positively welcomed the blackout, mothers coping with wayward evacuees, and a bishop who refused coffee on sentry duty in case it kept him awake.
