A brighter future was on everyone's mind as Christmas 1945 dawned. In this unique selection of songs and spoken-word recordings, we offer reminders of the mood of the nation during that first post-war Christmas, as loved ones returned from the frontline, families were reunited and new lives were being built. It was a time of rejoicing, celebration and renewed hope - all which was reflected in the recorded music of the moment. This is the soundtrack to a unique moment in our nation's history and one of the most touching Christmas albums anyone could ever own.
