WW1 National Call - An AHRC Podcast
2014 marks a hundred years since the outbreak of the First World War. Plans to commemorate this powerful and significant period of history have led to the setting up of a project called ‘World War One at Home'. It involves the Arts and Humanities Research Council, in partnership with the BBC.
Academics within the arts and humanities will be working alongside BBC journalists to find and explore stories on places across the UK that have a special connection with this transformative part of our past.
In this AHRC podcast we hear from academics involved in a pilot scheme which is already up and running in the BBC West Region, which covers Bristol, Bath, Somerset, Gloucestershire and Wiltshire. The two academics already taking part are Kent Fedorowich and Charles Booth who are both based at the University of the West of England.
