Katherine Jenkins and Michael Aspel celebrate the heroes of the Home Front. Witnesses tell of the worst civilian tragedy on the Home Front - the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster.
Forces sweetheart Katherine Jenkins is joined by Michael Aspel to celebrate the heroes of the Home Front in a special week of programmes to commemorate the week 70 years ago that Britain went to war with Nazi Germany.
Witnesses tell of the worst civilian tragedy on the Home Front - the Bethnal Green Tube Disaster, in which 173 people were crushed to death in a crowd fleeing an air raid that never happened. Plus, the moving stories of two couples whose love letters to each other throughout the war prove that the pen really is mightier than the sword, and antiques expert Tim Wonnacott continues his search for the everyday wartime objects that have become collectables.
