Music Concert Hall


In the lead up to Remembrance Day, join the BBC Big Band and singer Annie Gill as they capture the spirit of the 1940s. Look back in words and music at the momentous turning point of World War Two, and Britain’s finest hour, from the miracle of Dunkirk to the decisive victory of the Battle of Britain, in this evocative tribute presented by Kevin Whately.

From Vera Lynn and Gracie Fields to the Andrews Sisters and Glenn Miller, the songs and music of the 1940s are as well-loved today as ever. Celebrate the songs that won the war, including We’ll Meet Again, The White Cliffs of Dover and A Nightingale Sang in Berkeley Square, and thrill to Glenn Miller’s classic hits, the Dam Busters March, the music from Ron Goodwin’s classic score to 633 Squadron and highlights from the Last Night of the Proms, in a unique celebration of our Finest Hour.
