Prague fetes British Holocaust hero

A new drama-documentary premiered in Prague this week about the incredible story of Nicholas Winton.

Called Nicky's Family, the film tells the story of the British man who saved hundreds of Jewish children from Nazi-occupied Czechoslovakia in 1939.

Winton was later knighted for his efforts, and Sir Nicholas, now 101, was in Prague once again to attend the premiere. The BBC's Rob Cameron saw the film and went to meet him.
