Life-saving WWII train journey retraced


A historic train journey made by Jewish children trapped in Prague in 1939 is being revisited in the Czech Republic.

It is being made by some of the people whose lives were saved by British diplomat Sir Nicholas Winton.

The train routes he organised out of Prague helped hundreds of children escape certain death at the hands of the Nazis at the start of World War II.

Robert Hall reports.
