Hi All,i saw that one alberta..as you say very moving...i recently posted on another thread about about the astle family from guildford st...mom..nan and 6 children all lost their lives..i shall talking soon to my aunt joyce who was born in 1930 and has memories of growing up during ww2...like our mom she lived in paddington st which was next to guildford st...will be writing down her memories...
I too watched this program and, as a young teenager throughout the war, I was very disappointed in it. It included Coventry to a great extent and that was a seperate issue in that it suffered greatly in one attack whilst Birmingham was attacked many times over a period of months. Also I thought that David Harewood was a poor choice for presenter He was born well after the war and his parents did not arrive here until 1960 so they did not have any memories of the blitz to pass on to him. Someone like Carl Chinn was needed.
