What did Lucy say about lightning?
When writing for The telegraphLucy explains that she couldn’t help but make comparisons between the lightning bolt and the current COVID-19 pandemic.

Lucy writes, “But what I wanted to do the most in the program is to celebrate the work of the volunteers in Blitz who – in addition to their daily work – gave their time as ARP attendants, fire fighters, and auxiliary nurses.
“It is based on the diaries of six real ‘normal’ people who did extraordinary things for others in times of crisis, as is happening now in our communities, in our immunization centers and in the NHS.
“Both volunteer groups then, as now, put each other on the front line in danger so that the rest of us – as the WWII slogan is – can keep calm and move on.”
Blitz Spirit starring Lucy Worsley will air Tuesday night at 8:30 p.m. on BBC One.
