Children of World War II - Living through the air raids
We meet Alan and his grand-daughter Isabel. Alan lived in north London during the Second World War and was in his home when the neighbour's house suffered a direct hit. Alan lost his mother in the bombing. Alan revists his home and school, where Isabel gets a feel for what it was like to have lessons disrupted by visits to the air raid shelter.
