Ancestors in the Attic with Jeff Douglas
S1:Ep1423 mins2009

Albert Lambert was a navigator and squadron commander during World War II. In July 1943, his plane was shot down over German-occupied France and he went missing. For five unbearable months his family feared the worst. Then one day, they received the good news that Al had escaped to Spain and was alive.

Although Al Lambert lived a long life, he never told his children or grandchildren what happened during those five months in France. Now, 65 years later, Al’s grandson, has decided to retrace his grandfather’s footsteps and discover, if he can, the people who helped save Al Lambert’s life.
