Second World War documentary series commissioned by UKTV History, remembering the unsung heroes of World War II from Land Army girls to the evacuees, and even enemy prisoners all pulled their weight in the effort to feed a nation at war.
Episode Two: War At Sea
Looking at the role of the merchant seamen during the 2nd World War. This episode follows the men who risked their lives bringing essential food and supplies across the Atlantic to keep Britain a float before sending it back out to ports as diverse as Malta and Russia. Ordinary members of the public talk about the extraordinary events in their lives during their time discussing what it was like to travel in large convoys under the threat of attack by German U-Boat and how the merchant seamen had their wages stopped the moment their boat was sank.
