TALK: AUNTIE'S WAR - THE BBC DURING THE SECOND WORLD WAR Image

Edward Stourton will be talking about his book Auntie’s War. It was the world’s first radio war. It formed our broadcasting culture, it saw the invention of modern reporting and gave Britain a new source of soft power. And the BBC played a key role in the secret war, transmitting coded messages to Occupied Europe.

The Spectator called the book “fascinating, complex and exhaustively researched” – the Times described it as “moving and amusing”. Edward Stourton has worked in broadcasting for 40 years, and presents programmes on Radio Four. This is his seventh book.
