"A truly global conflict": cast and creator of World on Fire discuss their World War Two drama

BBC One’s hit wartime drama World on Fire returned over the summer – but only after a frustrating series of delays, largely caused by Covid, which led creator Peter Bowker to joke that the series “took longer to film than the war itself”.

Bowker was speaking at an online RTS National Event in July ahead of the transmission of the second series, almost four years after the first aired.
