Veteran CBC reporter Joe Schlesinger narrates the story of the man who saved his life. In 1938, Sir Nicholas Winton was a free-wheeling 29 year old stockbroker. He visited Czechaslovakia after Germany had annexed the Sudetenland. He found refugees in horrible conditions and plans for German conquest. He organized to get the children out which attracted the attention of a beautiful German spy. He was rejected by every country except his own, Britain. In the process, he lost his job. With guile, persistence, and forged papers, he was able to rescue 669 children. For 50 years, the story had been forgotten until his wife found a curious book in the attic.

The story is amazing. It's a relatively standard news documentary. However if you don't shed at least one tear, you better have your heart checked.
