Description
Information
A behind-the-scenes look at religious radio broadcasting during World War II in which such revered figures as CS Lewis and Dorothy Sayers came into the public eye.

This fascinating book explores the tensions behind the greatest era in BBC radio broadcasting - the Home Service. Despite evacuation, air-raids and the closure of the fledgling TV service, the BBC rose magnificently to the challenge of informing, entertaining and inspiring a nation at war.

The war years were to transform religious broadcasting beyond recognition. Under the persistent and innovative James Welch, the BBC began to invent new formats and take large risks in trying to communicate Christian truth to a generation whose faith was on the rack of war. Out of this came the broadcast talks of CS Lewis and the first ever dramatic portrayal of Christ in Dorothy L Sayers' Man Born To Be King.
