Presented by Jo Brand, this is the dramatisation of the life of Vera Brittain, a young woman who lived through the First World War.

Through Vera's letters, memoirs and her celebrated autobiography, Testament of Youth, Brand tells the story of a war that saw Vera's brother, fiancé and friends make the ultimate sacrifice. She follows Vera's story and talks with Baroness Shirley Williams, Brittain's daughter, about the war's impact on her mother.
