Campaign to Save ITV show “Home Fires”

Masterpiece Theater showed a wonderful show last year from ITV, Home Fires, about women in England on the home front. It is based on the book Home Fires: The Story of the Women’s Institute in the Second World War by Julie Summers.

The book was originally called Jambusters.

Sadly, ITV has cancelled the next season, sparking outrage. I hope ITV decides to reinstate the series–it is wonderful and all from the women’s perspective on the home front. You can sign the petition (with over 31,000 signatures) to save “Home Fires” by going here.

Be sure to read an interview with the haunting theme song composer, Samuel Sim, here. More importantly, listen to the music. It has caused a sensation internationally. Just listen and you’ll understand why.

And you can tweet about it! @SaveHomeFires and share information about it here.
