Legacy of a doctor's war

The Aidan MacCarthy story was told in an episode of BBC Radio 4's 'Legacy of War' series, narrated by actor Sean Bean, broadcast on July 27, 2020.

    Exploring how war experiences filter down through the generations, the series in this programme focused on how the lives of Niki and Adrienne MacCarthy had been affected.
