It is a fascinating story. What a remarkable lifestory. Mary's mother's cooking skills and thriftyness during and after the war and her father's goals to be self sufficient were interesting in themselves.
The footage and photographs of the social history for instance, the treatment of the polio victims was more than I had ever seen or heard about on TV before, especially first hand from a victim, Mary herself.
It was a really nicely balanced well made programme and I am looking forward to the next part. One of those worth the licence fee programmes.
