Notes
The excitement and fear provoked by the Bolshevik Revolution that overturned Russia, Britain's greatest ally in the war, rippled out around the world and - briefly - made people believe that anything was possible.

Season 12 of Home Front, 'Giddy with Possibility', is set back in the world of industrial Tyneside, at a time of unprecedented unrest and union activity, and where ladies' football is gaining a foothold in the national imagination.

Story-led by Shaun McKenna, Season 12 brings together the talents of Sebastian Baczkiewicz, Sarah Daniels, Caroline Horton and Katie Hims.
