Kate Atkinson: Telling the lost stories of World War II

Most of us might think an award-winning first novel, a TV series and an MBE for services to literature are signs that things are going quite well.

But author Kate Atkinson is showing no signs of slowing down, and says her latest novel is her best yet.

It follows on from the last year's huge success, Life After Life. Kate joined BBC Breakfast to explain why she decided to tell the lost stories of World War II, and revisit her story of the Todd family in her new book, A God In Ruins.
