In this remarkable collection of BBC recordings, we hear what the people of the Home Front listened to as they lived, loved, laughed and worked through the dark days of World War Two; from the stirring speeches and air-raid sirens, to the humour and music that helped to keep them smiling through. But we also hear their story in a unique oral history of ordinary lives turned upside down: wedding nights spent in the Underground, couples falling in love who scarcely noticed the bombing and positively welcomed the blackout, and mums coping with wayward evacuees. Listen and be taken back to a world in which housewives became riveters and bank clerks turned into firefighters - but where no-one could turn on a light or ever find a banana! This is the original recordings from the BBC Sound Archive, with linking narration by Richard Baker.
