I’ve recorded it along with the programme talking to the survivors.
Saving it for when there’s nothing I fancy on tv.

Definitely an uplifting programme , I saw it last year as well. I had no idea about those children before then.

A very sad but ultimately heartwarming programme, complemented by the following programme where several of the men involved were interviewed. It was lovely to hear their stories of what happened to them after they left Windermere.
First saw these programmes a year ago but well worth watching again.

It was such a lovely upifting story, and ideal for the present situation where we can all come out of adversity and move forward.

I watched it, bless them. 720 children in all arrived, and 300 went to Windermere. A few of them were still alive today to tell the tale.

Hit post instead of editing! Very moving and well worth a watch. It's about Jewish children who came over to England from the camps at the end of WW2.
