What is The Week We Went To War about?
BBC One Daytime marks the 70th anniversary of the outbreak of the Second World War with a week of special programmes. The Week We Went To War, presented by world-renowned singer Katherine Jenkins, celebrates the everyday heroes of the Home Front, from families who took in evacuees to ordinary people who went into bombed buildings at risk of their own lives to save those trapped inside. Each day Katherine is joined in the studio by Michael Aspel, talking about his wartime memories including his experiences as an evacuee, and BBC antiques expert Tim Wonnacott, at Bletchley Park, looks at the everyday wartime items which have become today's collectables. Meanwhile, famous people who lived through the war actress Sylvia Syms, Baroness Williams, Tony Benn, Lionel Blair, Leslie Phillips and Rabbi Lionel Blue recall their childhood memories.
