Two world wars tore the heart out of the twentieth century. Between these wars was an age that is viewed as a time of jazz, prohibition, the talkies, radio and the motor car. In reality, the inter-war years were an age of anxiety. This series explores this period through rare archival images and the insights of historians. It describes twenty years of peace, an impossible peace that produced war.
