I watched this with my mum (who also contracted polio during the 1949 epidemic, although very young).

What I loved about this programme was how it showed Mary's drive and work-ethic; how she tried really hard at every job so that she could progress. There's a certain stoicism and no-nonsense about her generation, which I really admire.
