In this special programme commemorating 100 years since the armistice was signed, Edward Stourton looks at the commonwealth contribution to the war effort , the impact of the war still felt across the globe today and we hear the thoughts of young people on the importance of remembrance.

Also to mark 100 years on from the end of the First World War, the poet laureate, Carol Ann Duffy, has written a sonnet to mark the moment which she has recorded especially for Radio 4.
