Lower Sixth Pupil Features On Radio 4 Documentary

Lower Sixth pupil, Charlie Nearn (Rn) and his mother, are the subject of a 30 minute Radio 4 documentary series called ‘Lights Out’ that will be broadcast next week (Monday 23 March at 11pm).

Their episode charts how the Vietnam War has affected their family and explores the ripple effect through time, beginning with the bomb that killed Charlie’s grandfather on 1 April 1966, and arriving in the present moment via a journey of discovery to the Vietnam War memorial in Washington D.C. this past half-term.

Charlie studied the Vietnam War for his IGCSE and is continuing to develop his understanding of this fascinating period of American history at A-level History, and for his EPQ project.
