Based on a true story, "Leave Hitler To Me, Lad" tells the untold tale of a lost generation of children in the aftermath of World War 2.

Overview

Brian's Dad is a war hero and he's coming home any day! He's been coming home for 7 years...

It's 1952 and the country is rebuilding itself. King George is dead and Rock 'n' Roll is here to stay. Brian builds his own little family at school with his rabbit Pandy, friends Gladys, an orphan, George, who doesn't know where his
parents are either and Mr Bill his Welfare Officer. Then there is Miss Bates, the Headmistress of Great Stony School who rules the school with an iron fist.

The children look forward to Sports Day - a day off Bates' rules and sanctions. However, heads turn when a glamorous teenager appears to unravel the past and reveal a shocking secret that will turn Brian's world
upside down, forever.
