The National Archives is again hosting a series of monthly talks to broaden awareness of historical records and their uses for writers.

Each month, a high-profile author will talk about using original records in their writing. Jeremy Paxman explores what life was like for the British during the First World War, from politicians to newspapermen, Tommies, factory-workers, nurses, wives and children.

Please note: tickets for this event have now sold out.
