War Story

  1. Overview
  2. Fact Sheet

A stirring story from the Second World War in which the narrator Bill speaks frankly about the bombing and the plumbing. His narrative taken from a real interview, slips in and out of memory, revealing the astonishing resiliance of ordinary people in the face of Hitler, subsidence and a deaf coalman.
