Publisher's Summary

The British Broadcasting Corporation is a British institution, and its story during the Second World War is also our story. 

This was a period of remarkable voices: Churchill’s speeches, de Gaulle’s broadcasts from exile, Richard Dimbleby and Vera Lynn. Radio offered an incomparable tool for propaganda while at the same time eyewitness testimonies gave a voice to everyone, securing the BBC’s reputation as a purveyor of truth. 

Edward Stourton explores the BBC’s wartime journey, investigating archives, diaries, letters and memoirs to examine what the BBC was and what it stood for.
