Eyewitness accounts from the BBC Archives provide a unique history of the first half of the 20th Century, narrated by Tim Pigott-Smith.

In this fascinating decade by decade collection, the events of 1900 to 1949 are described by the people who saw them happen. From the death of Queen Victoria and the accession of Edward VII, through the First World War, the sinking of the Titanic, the General Strike and the Great Depression, and onto the Second World War and its aftermath, events both joyful and sorrowful are recounted.

Compelling and rarely heard archive recordings are woven together with a an illuminating commentary, written by the historian Joanna Bourke and read by Tim Pigott-Smith.

Thought-provoking and moving, these are the voices of the past speaking to the present.
