No Title

Liz Friedman, designer at the BBC Graphic Design Department, has created the title sequence for What did you do in the War, Auntie?, part of BBC TV’s End of War season. Titles for the first part, themed on music and theatre, are set to a ‘homefront’ scene. Background wipes reveal ‘glimpses of old favourites such as Gracie Fields’, says a BBC Resources spokesman. Part two, which explores the idea of the BBC as the fourth arm of the war effort, is represented by Friedman with goggles, a pin-up photograph, the German flag and a gas mask. ‘All the props used are originals,’ Friedman adds.
