The BBC are making a series of documentaries about the Allied campaign in Western Europe in 1944/45 - D-Day to Berlin. The series will be broadcast in June 2004 to co-incide with the 60th anniversary of D-Day next year.

On 7th September 1944 the first V2 bomb was dropped on Chiswick and they are looking for someone who has recollections of the bomb landing in Staveley Road.
