Our Finest Hour

Our Finest Hour

Look back in words and music at the momentous turning point of World War Two, and Britain's finest hour, from the miracle of Dunkirk to the decisive victory of the Battle of Britain.

From Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields to the Andrew Sisters and Glenn Miller, the songs and music of the 1940s are as well-loved today as ever. With the famous speeches of Winston Churchill, and the best tunes of the time from the dance halls and wireless, join the BBC Big Band and stars of the West End for this unique celebration of Our Finest Hour hosted by Kevin Whateley and Peter Bowles.
