A Pocketful of Posies

Documentary in which the nation's oldest men and women recount personal childhood stories from the early 20th-century. Including the two 90-year-old sisters who languished in a grim London orphanage after the death of their father, and the Rev Pat Keating, who recalls the Russian Revolution and fleeing from the Red Army with his family - minus his beloved dog.
