"Lost Property" by Katie Hims

Nannylicious Report 11 Feb 2012 13:12

A series of plays was broadcast recently on BBC Radio 4, each one relating to a story of people who went missing during WW2, often because of evacuation procedures.

The plays are narrated by Rosie Cavaliero and are obtainable as audio books.

They make for fascinating, sometimes heartbreaking listening but give an insight into what some families went through.
