The Silver Sword

This was a TV series with Frazer Hines and Melvyn Hayes in it.

It was based in occupied Poland and a family had found themselves separated from their parents and they began to re-discover of each other.

'Jan' was an orphan scavenger who had visited her old wrecked house and found a letter-opener - the 'silver sword' of the title - which he produced when the family coincidentally met him.

it was a drama, with the odd nazi here and thee but had a happy ending.

    I remember it very well. I can still remember the theme tune too. Wish I knew the name of the tune. Does anyone know? I can recall Ruth, Bronya, and Edek, Melwyn Hayes as the children. THe silver sword was a letter opener. It did make me cry as a child. Just been watching a film with Sylvia Sims and Melwyn Hayes about poverty in London, I think it was called something like 'The trees dont grow in this street.' Quite an old black and white movie and there was Melwyn looking similar to how he had looked in The Silver Sword way back then. I was seven when I watched it. It was so powerful.

    IT WAS ABRILLIANT SERIES. I WAS 8YRS OLD AT THE TIME IN 1956 AND IT MADE SUCH AN IMPRESSION ON ME THAT I CAN STILL RECALL IT AND THE NAMES OF THE CHARACTERS.
