Publisher Description

Includes two programmes: 'Poppies are Red, Cornflowers are Blue' and 'The Art of Remembrance'. Poppies are Red, Cornflowers are Blue: It's not just about how the Poppy became the symbol of remembrance in Britain - though that is a fascinating story, rarely told in full - this is also a deeper analysis of why it rapidly became such a strong and enduring symbol, to the point where some fear it is becoming over-exploited. Plus we look at France's rather less ubiquitous flower of remembrance, the blue cornflower... The Art of Remembrance: Mark Whitaker looks at some of the more unusual ways that artists remembered the Great War, through the works of a painter, an architect, a film-maker, a sculptor and a poet.
