Duration: 02:51

Winifred and Helen have been best friends since childhood. They are now 84 and 83 and still live in the South Yorkshire mining village where they met, grew up, and raised their families. Here they reminisce about how they danced their teenagers years away during the 1940s and reflect on how their lives have remained entwined.
