Full Description

During the wartime years (WWII), the BBC was the sole radio broadcaster in Britain, boosting morale through programmes such as 'ITMA' and 'Worker's Playtime'; helping the Home Front with useful hints and advice; transmitting government messages; and providing news. This fascinating book explains that the BBC chose to avoid propaganda, and had to tread a fine line between what the people wanted to hear and what it was felt they should hear.
