Publisher's Summary

A five part series exploring how the story of Western ideology may have unfolded differently in the 20th Century, based on the undelivered speeches of world leaders. Features academics, writers and historians talking to presenter Professor Suzannah Lipscomb.

Tracking through the 20th century, from the Western heroic rhetoric borne of Allied success in the D-Day Landings, all the way to Britain's present day relationship with Europe, we'll explore the fragile balance of power, nuclear armament, warfare, heroic narratives and the spread of democratic protest throughout the world.
