TV watch next week …

I don’t want anyone to miss this!



On 23rd February at 8.30 Lucy Worsley investigates what the Blitz Spirit means, by looking at the lives of people who lived through it. One of them is Frances Faviell, author of the wonderful A Chelsea Concerto, which I reviewed here.

I think it’s the best book about the Blitz I’ve ever read and have been pressing it on people ever since first reading it. I was alerted to the programme by Dean Street Press, who published the book as part of its Furrowed Middlebrow series. They are rightly proud of this because such a book should not have been out of print for so long.
