Presented by award-winning children's writer Michael Morpurgo, this genuinely ground-breaking history of British childhood from the year 1000 to the present explores, through a wide and colourful range of primary sources, how the idea of childhood has been constantly reinvented down the centuries and why the role of children in society continues to obsess us today.

Fascinating and thought-provoking, it will appeal to parents, grandparents and anyone who has ever been a child themselves.

Written by Hugh Cunningham, introduced and presented by Michael Morpurgo, Children's Laureate from 2003 to 2005.
