Michael Wood’s Story of England is a six-part BBC documentary series written and presented by Michael Wood and airing from 22 September 2010.
The series tells the story of one place, the Leicestershire village of Kibworth, throughout the whole of English history.
In this final episode, helped by today’s villagers Michael uncovers the secret history of a Victorian village more colourful than even Dickens could have imagined. Recreating their penny concerts of the 1880s, visiting World War I battlefields with the school and recalling the Home Guard, local land girls and the bombing of the village in 1940, the series finally moves into the brave new world of ‘homes fit for heroes’ and the villagers come together to leave a reminder of their world for future generations.
