Of Peaceful and War


At the launch of a new film based on his book Private Peaceful, author Michael Morpurgo explains why he feels the legacy of World War One is still with us today.

Speaking on the Andrew Marr Show, the author reveals how he discovered letters relating to the court marshall of soldiers for alleged cowardice in the Great War which made him want to tell their story.

You can watch the Andrew Marr Show in full on the BBC iPlayer.
