Growing up before World War II

As generations go by, increasingly fewer people can remember how it was to grow up in Britain before the Second World War.

The Today programme's Justin Webb hears the differing perspectives of Harry Leslie Smith, who grew up in Yorkshire during the Depression of the 1930s, and Baroness Trumpington.

First broadcast on BBC Radio 4's Today programme.
