They all saw the light of day in the year 1900. Author and interviewer Hunter Davies has had the brilliant idea of following our century through these people and institutions, casting vivid light and new perspectives on how we live now - and how we lived then. Why isn't education as valued today? Where are the great philanthropists? Why does work have so little meaning when it's all people do? These are some of the questions provoked by Hunter Davies' interviewees and their candid recollections of being born with the century. Amid huge technological changes, it is the lack of community, most people's belief that they live in an uncaring world, that defines the century's end.Hide synopsis
