Simon Russell Beale re-evaluates the 1963 stage musical Oh! What a Lovely War on its 50th anniversary to discover whether it changed people's attitudes to the First World War, and if it reveals more about the 1960s than 1914. There is also an interview with theatre employee Charles Chilton, recorded before his death last year.
