Ed Stourton
Auntie’s War: The BBC During the Second World War

BBC veteran Edward Stourton brings a new perspective to this uniquely British institution, in a colourful portrayal of radio’s essential role in wartime Britain. Today we have the internet: in the 1940s we had the wireless. Join us to hear how from Chamberlain to Churchill, the Blitz to the D-Day landings, ‘Auntie’ was a crucial lifeline of communication, shaping how we saw these defining moments of world history.

In conversation with Sian Kevill, former Editor of the BBC’s Newsnight and Director of Make Waves – making films that have social impact
