Saturday, 7 September 1940, was the day the London Blitz began. But it was also the night the dreaded codeword 'Cromwell' was issued: the night the church bells rang; the night an army officer decided to arm his men with spanners; when a Middlesex Home Guard went looking for parachutists with a broom handle; and a former nun wondered if she could bring herself to kill an enemy soldier with a garden fork.
David Mahlowe introduces the first-hand memories of these and other people who recall the events of May-September 1940. which culminated in The Invasion that Never Was.
With the recorded voices of Winston Churchill, Anthony Eden, Adolf Hitler, and some of the British men and women who defeated him.
Written by Norman Longmate, with the assistance of contributors to his recently published book, How We Lived Then.

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
