Music from the Home Front as World War Two strikes, and BBC Radio and British cinema play their parts with rousing marches to inspire the troops. Soothing songs keep the home fires burning. Upbeat tunes motivate factory workers. Rallying wartime propaganda raises morale -Keep Calm and Carry On. John Ireland: Epic March; Music While You Work - orchestral music following the rules of wartime broadcasting; Sincerely Yours - a selection of music by The Forces' Sweetheart Vera Lynn; Clifton Parker: Seascape from Western Approaches; Richard Addinsell: Warsaw Concerto; William Walton: Henry V Suite.
