Baroness Shirley Williams follows the footsteps taken by her mother Vera Brittain in her memoir Testament of Youth to the graveside of her uncle Edward Brittain in the foothills of the Italian Alps.

Through letters sent between Edward and Vera, and a journey to the trenches of Northern Italy, Shirley Williams looks back at the forgotten Asiago campaign on the Italian Front at the very end of World War I and the tragic circumstances leading to Edward Brittain’s death 100 years ago.

Presented by the Friends of Buxton Festival.
