Birmingham remembers the Blitz

Seventy years ago German bombers brought the Blitz to Birmingham.

More than 2000 people were killed in the air raids, but censors made sure the true scale of the event went unreported at the time.

Commemorations will be held on Friday, but many survivors feel that their city's contribution and sacrifice has been largely forgotten.

Robert Hall reports.
