Add Full Plot
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.
