about

In association with the flagship BBC2 series, Britain's Greatest Generation celebrates the achievements of the exceptional generation of men and women born in the early twentieth century.

This is the story of the men and women of a truly remarkable generation. Born into a world still reeling from the earth-shattering events of the Great War, they grew up during the appalling economic depression of the 1930s, witnessed the globe tear itself apart again during the Second World War, and emerged from post-war austerity determined to create a new society for their children.

It is the story of people who raised their families during the immense social upheaval of the Fifties and Sixties, as the world in which they had grown up changed inexorably. It is the story of the people who shaped the way we live now.

Britain's Greatest Generation tells this multi-faceted story through the eye-witness accounts of those who were there, from Japanese prisoner of war Fergus Anckorn to Dame Vera Lynn, from Bletchley Park veteran Jean Valentine to Dad's Army creator Jimmy Perry, and from fighter pilot Tom Neil to the Queen's cousin Margaret Rhodes. Together their testimony creates a vivid, often deeply moving picture of an extraordinary epoch -- and the extraordinary people who lived through it.
SUE ELLIOTT is the author of the bestselling memoir and history of adoption Love Child (2005) and The Children Who Fought Hitler (2009) about the WW2 exploits of former pupils of the British Memorial School in Ypres and was a Researcher on the BBC4 documentary of the same name made by Testimony.
