Legacy of Vietnam war's 'baby-lift' children


As the Vietnam war was ending in 1975, a newspaper campaign tried to try to save dozens of orphans by bringing them to the UK for adoption, in what was known as the 'baby-lift'.

Thirty-five years later, one of those children, Viktoria Cowley, set out to discover what happened to the other children and to try to trace her birth parents.

Keir MacKenzie reports.
