A monthly series in which Outside Broadcast and film cameras tell how one incident can change one person's life.

Sarmite, daughter of a once wealthy Latvian family, tells Hywel Davies how, from a Displaced Persons' Camp in Germany, she came to be at Nottingham University through the venture in faith of an English schoolmistress.

In a camp in Germany Christopher Chataway hears about the problems of ten thousand other children of displaced persons, who have no future.
