    Official censorship meant that reports of the First World War published in the Manchester Guardian were limited, but from today's perspective they give a sense of what British society was thinking and reading about at the time. This collection of articles from the paper's archive also allows us a wider view of contemporary attitudes, with reports on the music hall, the impact of Charlie Chaplin, the 'Country Diary' and international events such as the Easter Rising and the Russian Revolution.
