The One Show

I’ve just been chatting to the Researchers from The One Show about “Keep Calm and Carry On”, which they are planning to cover on 29th March.  I had tried pitching to The One Show before, but hadn’t been picked up.  It looks like I won’t actually be on it, as they will be filming at Barter Books (Alnwick is a little far from Winchester, although I really want to go and see the store!), but as usual, I hope that my historical knowledge makes a contribution… and is acknowledged! It will be interesting to see who else they talk to – I know it includes James Aulich, who wrote this great book on War Posters, and was behind the digitisation project at the Imperial War Museum.

Second World War Posters
Mass Communications Academic, @MMUBS. British Home Front Propaganda posters as researched for a PhD completed 2004. In 1997, unwittingly wrote the first history of the Keep Calm and Carry On poster, which she now follows with interest.
