The Luckiest Man in World War Two   1 x 50

Veteran soldier Alistair Urquhart opens up about his experiences during the Second World War - an astonishing story of determination and stamina that saw him survive while so many others perished.

Having been captured by the Japanese, the former Scottish soldier was tortured, starved and put to work on Burma's infamous `Death Railway', bundled onto a Japanese `hell ship' that was sunk by an American torpedo and imprisoned near Nagasaki as the atom bomb fell.

This remarkable documentary stands the test of time and remains a strong film for any WWII anniversary or season.  Alistair Urquhart's biography became the No 1 Best seller for The Sunday Times and The Daily Mail.

Full synopsis and episode available.
