A Journey Back to Poland
Written and narrated by Sir Hugh Greene.
In September 1939, three British foreign correspondents based in Poland found themselves caught up in the outbreak of the war. By car, they travelled across Poland to escape into neutral Romania and flee the German Blitzkrieg. In the autumn of 1977 they returned once more to retrace their wartime footsteps and see how much of old Poland still remains.
The three correspondents were Hugh Carleton-Greene and Clare Hollingworth of The Daily Telegraph, and Patrick Maitland of The Times. Producer PETER FOGES (R)
