Edek and Ruth are determined to find him, though they know how dangerous the long trip from Warsaw will be. But they also know that if they don't make it, they may never see their parents again. Their gripping story is taken from actual accounts Written by
I was only aged 5 when I watched the serial on the small screen, but it made an impression on me and much later I read and enjoyed the book. It's the music that accompanied it that I remember so well and every now and then I try to track it down by listening to classical music on you tube. It was stirring music which I'm sure was a genuine classical piece, not specially composed. I would love to see the serial again. I remember the ruins of Warsaw were quite graphic, and in those days there were still many ruined parts of cities (including Liverpool) where they could have filmed. It was good to read previous reviews and they echoed my thoughts about it. Perhaps I should try contacting the BBC to find an answer.
