Professor Amanda Vickery chairs 'The War That Changed the World' lecture

Wednesday November 19th

One hundred years ago the First World War set the course for the modern world; for the countries that took part nothing would be the same again. In this British Council and BBC World Service series we look at the impact of the war from around the globe. Professor Amanda Vickery chairs this special debate with a public audience at Musée de l'Armée - Hôtel national des Invalides in Paris. Film Director, Christian Carion, joins them to explore the Christmas Truce - the subject of his Oscar-nominated film ‘Joyeux Noël' - in an essay on courage which has been specially commissioned to mark the centenary of the spontaneous ceasefire which took place across the Western Front at Christmas 1914.

A radio recording of The war that changed the world: Heroism will be broadcast across the world by the BBC World Service.

Dr Chris Millard co-wrote an editorial for the British Medical Journal with Simon Wessely (the President of the Royal College of Psychiatrists) on Parity of Esteem between Mental and Physical Health. Whilst has been a high profile political issue in the UK since 2011, debates about the relative esteem and provision for mental and physical health are long standing.
