The Vera Lynn Story

Activity: Other activity typesOther


A documentary of the life of Vera Lynn, led by Sir David Frost.

I was the only historian chosen to speak, at length, about the wider context in which Vera Lynn was performing. I talked about the development of the popular music industry in the 1920s and 1930s; the BBC during wartime; and postwar British society.
