More than two million men and women serve in America’s all-volunteer military force, and another three million are their husbands, wives, sons and daughters.

In a revealing two-hour documentary special presented by Bob Woodruff, The Homefront will bring the true stories of these military families to an audience.

Equal pay as men. Designer clothes. And (eventually) respect. It's the story about the Greatest Generation that you haven't heard. Homefront Heroines: The WAVES of World War II introduces a group of quirky, independent and determined women who went where no women had gone before: into the Navy as WAVES, or Women Accepted for Volunteer Emergency Service. Through oral history interviews, the women tell of their homefront heroics, which were largely overshadowed by the more dramatic battles fought on the front lines. They volunteered, served as equals to men, and discovered that when they went home nothing could be the same again. The film reveals a hidden history about a generation who changed the course of American life.
Homefront is an American television drama series created and produced by Lynn Marie Latham and Bernard Lechowick in association with Warner Bros. Television for ABC. The show was set in the fictional city of River Run, Ohio in 1945, 1946, and 1947. The show's theme song, "Accentuate the Positive", was written by Johnny Mercer and performed by Jack Sheldon. Forty-two episodes were broadcast in the United States over two seasons from 1991 to 1993. TV Guide, Abigail Van Buren, and fans showed determination in getting ABC to continue the show for a third season before it was cancelled.
Homefront was an interior design "makeover" TV show airing on the BBC, on par with American television's This Old House and Martha Stewart. The programme appeared in two formats. The original format was a half-hour show hosted by Tessa Shaw, which ran c.1992-1997 and featured numerous different designers giving advice on DIY projects. The second was an hour-long makeover show presented by Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and Diarmuid Gavin. The seasons 1996-2000 were hosted by Anne McKevitt. This version originally aired concurrently with the original format as a spin-off titled Homefront Inside Out, but took on the title of the parent programme when the original format was axed. A variant titled Homefront in the Garden also aired, hosted by Shaw and featuring Diarmuid Gavin and Kevin McCloud.
