Home Again

Duration:
42 minutes
First broadcast:
Tuesday 10 May 2005

Charles Wheeler presents five personal interpretations of what the end of the Second World War meant to people in Britain and across the world. In Home Again, scarred soldiers returned to homes that had changed, and wives that had moved on. Moments of return and displacement. Demobilisation and memories of arriving home - wife at garden gate, marriage break up, concentration camp survivors return home, POWs return and women back in the home after war-work. Refugees seek their way back home but for others the displacement is beginning - Sudeten Germans expelled from Czechoslovakia; Germans shifting West.
