Two British children, separated from their parents due to the war, come to stay with the Baldwins. Jason is not sure he can fight in the war. Jim-Bob uses a short-wave radio and makes an amazing connection on that 1940 Christmas morning.
Did You Know?
This is Earl Hamner, creator of "The Waltons". This year we bring you a different kind of Christmas story. World War II literally comes to Walton's Mountain in the form of two English children seeking safety from the London Blitz. It's a story of courage and faith and the victory of the human spirit over the shattering impact of war. After this Christmas, never again will the world be the same. I invite you to enjoy a remarkable special broadcast.
