Episode Summary: This episode marks 80 years since the start of World War II, and brings fresh insights to the conflict through personal stories and family mementos. Introduced by Fiona Bruce from Dover Castle, where the evacuation of Dunkirk was organised in the spring of 1940, the episode includes the stirring tale of HMS Hardy and its doomed efforts to protect the Norwegi more port of Narvik - a mission that secured its captain the Victoria Cross. A sinister photo album belonging to an Austrian soldier offers a previously unseen glimpse of Neville Chamberlain's ill-fated meeting with Hitler in 1938, and Fiona meets 95-year-old Ray Palmer, who has the rare distinction of being first a child evacuee and then a serving soldier. Hilary Kay samples a potato-based dessert cooked from a wartime ration book, while Ronnie Archer Morgan admires a collection of colourful silk scarves designed to deliver propaganda messages. And finally, Bill Harriman is moved by the story of a child evacuee called Audrey whose parents arranged for her to be taken from Britain to Canada in a desperate bid to ensure her safety - but with tragic consequences.

Emmys Split Miniseries and TV Movies, Add New Categories

The Emmys are getting several changes this year, including the addition of several new categories, adding more nominees to existing categories, and undoing a change made four years ago. The biggest change ahead for the 2014 Emmy Awards is that there will be separate categories for Outstanding Miniseries and Outstanding Made-for-TV Movie. These were originally separate categories, but in 2011 they were combined due to a lack of miniseries on TV. In the last two years that the category existed, only two miniseries were even nominated for the award. more
