Publisher's Summary

Eyewitness accounts from the BBC Archive are at the heart of this unique history of the first half of the 20th century, narrated by Tim Pigott-Smith. The events of 1900-1949 are described by the people who saw them happen, from the death of Queen Victoria and accession of Edward VII through the First World War, to the sinking of the Titanic, the General Strike and the Great Depression, to the Second World War and its aftermath. Events both joyful and sorrowful are illustrated with fascinating and rarely heard archive recordings, with a linking narration by the historian Joanne Bourke. Thought-provoking and moving, these are the voices of the past speaking to the present day.

    "A great retrospective"
    Would you listen to Eyewitness 1900-1949 again? Why?

    I would, to see parts I may have missed, figuring out who was who when archived interviews were mentioned.


    What other book might you compare Eyewitness 1900-1949 to and why?

    Afraid I can't think of any book to compare this to.


    Which character – as performed by Tim Pigott-Smith – was your favorite?

    While he didn't perform them all, I liked all the characters, especially the people being interviewed.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, couldn't do it.


    Any additional comments?

    A must-have for fans of 20th century history even if it's from a British POV.
