Publisher's Summary

The entire second series of BBC Radio 4's groundbreaking First World War 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 of 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.

    "Loving This Series!!!"

    I was listening to all the earlier podcasts on the BBC Radio 4 when I saw the First Series of Homefront and this one at Audible. Now I'll have to go back to the podcast which is fine ...just not as seamless as this way!
    The actors are phenomenal!
    I think you would enjoy this if you love the notion of Old Radio serials; are interested in the British Homefront during the Great War (WW I); and are partial to British narrators/actors.
    All of the above applies to me 🙂
    You could always find the podcast on the BBC radio
    4 to try it for free.
