Summary
Authentic voices from the past illustrate this unique history of the twentieth century, written by Joanna Bourke and presented by Tim Pigott-Smith. Eyewitness provides a rare and fascinating opportunity to hear the events of the century described by those who saw them happen. A wealth of BBC archive recordings, some never previously broadcast, is interwoven with an illuminating commentary by the historian Joanna Bourke. Published in ten volumes, Eyewitness examines the role and the life of the British people in each decade of the century. Bystanders, broadcasters and politicians describe these events and many others. History is heard in the making -- for example with the Argentinean storming of the Falklands Broadcasting Station. While the 1980's are too close for a true historical perspective, what emerges here is that this decade was one of the most confrontational periods of the century. Thought-provoking and moving, these are the voices of the past, speaking to the present
