General Information
While nazi Germany still had the initiative, while the Luftwaffe had something to say on the british skyes and - most of all - while buzz-bombs and deadly V2 rockets still hit the core of the British Empire, for the people living in it there was a continuous hell. When the buzz stops, you're in danger, the flying bomb in near! - one tough rule learned during the horrific raids. How did the poeple manage to survive? Did they stand together or it was every man for himself? This series tries to investigate the human part of the blitz - apart from the bombs, there were victims. People. Fear. Courage.
 Rich and Poor
Was the spirit of fellowship a myth or a reality? As German bombs rained down, did communities pull together or was it every man for himself?
 Life and Death
Veterans of the Blitz, those who were buried in the rubble, and those who helped rescue the trapped and helpless, remember that extraordinary, terrifying time.
 Life Goes On
Harrods employees kept on working despite the falling bombs; couples married and cooks made the most of the scanty rations. How did people carry on through the chaos?
Unhygienic and overcrowded, bomb shelters, tube stations and even caves provided at least the illusion of safety during air raids. But how did claustrophobics cope?
