The Evacuees

1 x 60' - BBC ONE NI (2005)


During the Second World War, thousands of children were evacuated from Belfast, separated from their families and their familiar city streets to live with strangers in the countryside.

Many of these evacuees did not know where they were going, nor for how long. But one thing was certain - the experience would change the children's lives forever.

On the 60th anniversary of the end of the war, The Evacuees is a poignant documentary revealing the remarkable untold stories of those evacuated to the countryside.
