01Home Front20140808

Epic new drama series set in Great War Britain a hundred years ago this week. Omnibus of the first week, as Folkestone comes to terms with being at the hub of Britain's war effort.

Written by Katie Hims

Consultant Historian: Professor Maggie Andrews

Music: Matthew Strachan

Directed by Jessica Dromgoole

Home Front is a ground-breaking new Radio Four radio drama - its biggest ever - set in Britain during 1914-18, playing a central role in the BBC's comprehensive World War One offering.

An enthralling fiction, set against a backdrop of fact. Each episode is set a hundred years to the day before broadcast, and follows one character's day. Together they create a mosaic of experience from a wide cross-section of British society, and a playful treasure hunt, with historical truths hidden in each story.

Season One is set in Folkestone, a fashionable Edwardian seaside resort that quickly became one of the hubs of the military machine, and close enough to France to hear the fighting. Future seasons will be set in Newcastle and Devon, telling the major stories of wartime Britain.
