Living through the London Blitz

The impact of Hitler's relentless bombing offensive upon the lives of Londoners 70 years ago left its mark.

The raids targeted British towns and cities, starting with the capital, which was bombed for 57 consecutive nights.

BBC London's Matthew Morris meets a group of women who remember living through the ordeal. They are all part of a project between Westminster Archives and the Churchill War Rooms.
