1910 - 1919

Audiobook

Tim Pigott-Smith presents the second volume in this unique audio snapshot of the history of the Twentieth Century.

Released in ten volumes, Eyewitness provides a rare opportunity to hear the history of the 20th century described by those who were actually there. Tim Pigott-Smith weaves together fascinating reminiscences taken from the BBC archives – many previously unbroadcast – with an insightful commentary written by Joanna Bourke, Professor of History at Birkbeck College.

A multitude of vox pops offer fascinating insights into life in the 1900s – the manners, fashion, discipline, religion, alcohol and sport. Voices of ordinary people are mixed with those whose names still resonate today.

Captivating, revelatory, thought-provoking and very often moving, these are the authentic voices of the past, speaking to the present.
