This is the story of the men and women of a truly remarkable generation. Born into a world still reeling from the earth-shattering events of the Great War, they grew up during the appalling economic depression of the 1930s, witnessed the globe tear itself apart again during the Second World War, and emerged from post-war austerity determined to create a new society for their children. It is the story of people who raised their families during the immense social upheaval of the 50s and 60s, as the world in which they had grown up changed inexorably. It is the story of the people who shaped the way we live now.
