How the War was Won 1

How the War was Won 1

The fighting spirit of the British people during WWII has never been denied. From the home front to the front line they kept smiling through - with a little help from the stars in battledress.

Arthur Askey, Jack Warner, Gert and Daisy, Max Wall, Tommy Trinder and George Formby all lent a hand, each bringing their individual brand of humour to the war effort.

New songs and old favourites sung by Gracie Fields, Beryl Davis, Syd Walker and Bernie Clifton all helped to raise morale. While an army of unsung amateur performers enlisted by ENSA entertained their hearts out for the troops, the public and the spirit of the nation. This warm, funny and highly enjoyable programme will keep you smiling too.
