9781785292026: Home Front: Series Two: BBC Radio Drama

The entire second series of BBC Radio 4’s groundbreaking World War I drama serial. First broadcast from December 2014 to January 2015, the drama of Home Front Series Two is set exactly 100 years before. Following characters from a wide cross-section of British society in 1914, the action is once again set in the Edwardian seaside town Folkestone. For the men and women of the town, recruitment and volunteering are the order of the day. The Graham household prepares for an arrival, but all is not well in the Winwood household. Meanwhile, good news is devastating for Kitty. This remarkable, groundbreaking drama charts the strategies that ordinary people found for managing life in wartime, and recalls how, together, they ensured that the Home Front didn’t break down. Through the characters’ lives, major and minor stories of wartime Britain are told. Among the cast are Claire Rushbrook, Michael Bertenshaw, Deborah Findlay, Ami Metcalf, and Rachel Shelley. Duration: 6 hours approx.
