1914-1918: The Cultural Front

I have just listened to 1914-1918: The Cultural Front on BBC iPlayer radio:  http://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/b03th76d

Presented by Francine Stock, it is the first of a three-part series.

Invasion literature; The Vigil by Henry Newbolt; sonnets by Rupert Brooke; the Germans burning an ancient Belgian library; the spontaneous boycot of alien musicians; Kipling warning "The Hun is at the gate".
