Home Front and Tommies: epic radio dramas of the first world war1h 3m Home Front and Tommies: epic radio dramas of the first world war
Unfolding in time with the events of the war, after four years, these two fantastic BBC series have concluded As the last bugles sounded to mark a century’s distance between us and the war to end all wars, a modern campaign of a different kind – planned with no little military precision – was brought to an end. For the past four years, the BBC has presented radio listeners with two outstanding drama serials timed to unfold in parallel with the events of the first world war. Home Front told the interwoven stories of families in England, while Tommies followed soldiers, both British and colonial, on fronts stretching from Europe’s trenches to the deserts of the Middle East. Home Front’s writers were charged with bringing to life the extraordinary social change wrought by the conflict. And they succeeded – over more than 600 13-minute episodes, across 15 series, the show tackled issues that ranged from volunteering and industry to nursing and faith. As the families’ stories progressed, real events – a factory explosion, the first aerial bombing raid, the Russian revolution – framed the action.

The highbrow film critic who was also a fanboy: the genius of VF Perkins2h The highbrow film critic who was also a fanboy: the genius of VF Perkins
He eschewed star ratings and saw things others didn’t. Stephen Merchant, Paul WS Anderson and J Blakeson recall being taught by the great film theorist In 2006, an elaborate work of graffiti appeared on a wall at the University of Warwick. It depicted the stencilled face of the department’s founder, the film theorist VF (Victor Francis) Perkins, beaming from within three frames of celluloid. Scrawled next to it was a line of punky text: “VF Perkins, head & shoulders above the rest”. Respect for him was not restricted to the Warwick campus. His criticism was admired by film-makers – when François Truffaut empties out a bag of film books in Day for Night, Perkins’s work is among them – and with good reason: he had been among the first to argue for cinema as an art form when the Observer’s

Dreamers by Volker Weidermann review – Munich 1919, a moment of anarchy4h Dreamers by Volker Weidermann review – Munich 1919, a moment of anarchy
A superb account of an episode when the writers took over and it seemed all could be different. Then people were rounded up and shot On 7 November 1918, a critic and journalist called Kurt Eisner, with long grey hair, a wild beard and pince-nez, led a victory parade through the streets of Munich, calling for revolution. Crowds flocked, among them the many disbanded soldiers returning from the war. Eisner dreamed of a free and independent Bavaria, run by councils of writers and workers in which artists would elevate and educate the masses and there would never again be war. He would be prime minister. It could not, indeed did not, last. But for three chaotic weeks, ungoverned Munich was in perpetual carnival mood, with women sitting outside on their porches in the sunshine and prophets, “hypnotists, and those who had been hypnotised” preaching anarchy and happiness. Thomas Mann’s son Klaus, 13 at the time, saw himself as “an animal feeling the approach of an earthquake”. In his extremely enjoyable

Exhausted hero Tavner valiantly tries to rescue his brother and get his failing mission back on track31h Exhausted hero Tavner valiantly tries to rescue his brother and get his failing mission back on track
John Tavner’s hero is back and is valiantly trying get his failing mission back on track but a missing bag of money and the Iranians look to scupper his plans To sum up: the first season of Patriot (Amazon Prime) is impossible to sum up. And the extensive montage that kicks off season two doesn’t help much. Partly this is due to the two-year gap between them – nobody’s memory is that good – and partly because the plot was impossible to follow in the first place and didn’t really matter anyway. You might have come for the promise of a standard spy thriller involving John Tavner, an intelligence officer with PTSD and a dad higher up in the espionage biz who recruits him for one last job. It’s an opaque non-official cover role, meaning there is backup from the big guys. While posing as manager John Lakeman at an industrial piping firm in Milwaukee, our hero sets out to derail Iran’s nuclear plans. Those who stuck with it stayed for the oddballery that ran through it like an industrial pipe through Milwaukee.
