The last of the series tracing the story of Myra Hess 's famous chamber concerts, presented by Robert Philip. As the Second World War drew to a close, Hess's concerts played host to visitors from Free France, including
Poulenc and Bernac and violinists Thibaud and Neveu. But the end of hostilities also meant the demise of the series after six-and-a-half years of daily concerts.
