As an essential propaganda tool and the voice that relayed news of all the key moments of World War II to every household, Auntie – the BBC’s enduring nickname – played a crucial role during World War II. In conversation with Peter Caddick-Adams, veteran BBC Radio presenter and journalist Edward Stourton will provide a remarkable portrait of a unique institution and an incomparable insight into why we have the broadcast culture we do today.
