Headline Britons paints a unique picture of British life in the 20th and 21st centuries by re-examining some of the country's most notable characters. Each book covers a five-year span, telling the stories of a number of people who, in that time, stood out among their contemporaries. As the General Strike of 1926 starkly illustrated, economic hardship continued to be the lodestone of the decade. An American import, the movies, revolutionised entertainment, while William Morris rapidly developed the motor car in Oxford. Peter Pugh brings these five years vividly to life through the stories of gay author Radclyffe Hall - whose seminal The Well of Loneliness also made people think again about sexual norms - John Logie Baird, whose development of the television in these years presaged another great revolution in everyday life, and the comedian who captured many hearts, Noel Coward.
