Hurricane pilot remembers the London Blitz

It is 70 years since millions of British civilians found themselves caught up in the full horrors of war, for the very first time. Night after night, Hitler's Luftwaffe carried out bombing raids on major towns and cities, singling out London for special attention.

More than 40,000 people were killed in what became known as the Blitz. Robert Hall speaks to Wing Commander Bob Foster and Blitz survivor Elizabeth Allen who both vividly remember the bombings.
