Dr Francis Warner, Honorary Fellow of St Catharine's College, Cambridge, delivers a public lecture at Madingley Hall on 19 February 2011. Francis Warner was born in Yorkshire in 1937 but spent the years of the Second World War in Epsom, Surrey, where his father was a parish priest. In this very personal reminiscence, he describes the terrors of life in 'Bomb Alley', the sustenance provided by his family and his faith, and the effect the Blitz had on the lives of those who survived it. The lecture is introduced by Dr Rebecca Lingwood, Director of Continuing Education. Please note that the lecture proper begins at the 4:00 minute point in the video.
