Borders at War
Heroes of the Home Front
The Second World War was a conflict that shook the world – and changed the Borders forever.
Borders at War is about the heroes of the home front, those women, children and others unable to fight and what their lives were like. Before it has outrun living memory, the experience of the war has been recorded in a series of moving and funny interviews with those few Borderers still able to recall rationing, the blackout, the lack of news of their soldiers, the Land Girls, the arrival of the Americans and Polish soldiers, the stolen moments of happiness and the tragedies of war. It is a unique document, the sort of television which will never be made again, and with the passing of many of the participants, can never be made again.
