Goodnight Children, Everywhere

In 1989, KCRW produced a documentary with author Monica B. Morris, Goodnight Children, Everywhere, honoring the 50th anniversary of “the evacuation." As Britain prepared to go to war with Germany, a million or more children were evacuated from major cities to the countryside. Parents were asked not to see their children off, did not know where they were going or even if they would see them again. Morris' book, Goodnight Children, Everywhere: Voices of Evacuees has just been published. This year marks the 70th anniversary of the evacuation. We commemorate it by reprising the documentary.  (Airs 2-3pm)
