0591: The Home Fires Keep Burning

0591: The Home Fires Keep Burning

With the centenary of the end of the First World War looming, Thos sits down with Professor Michael Williams of the University of Southampton to revisit Ivor Novello's evergreen anthem, Keep the Home Fires Burning; they discuss the song’s immediate and enduring appeal, and look at how it was marketed in America in 1917 when the USA joined the war. So turn the dark clouds inside out as the song comes home to its rightful place in the heart of the commemorations of the centenary of the Armistice.
