[From the Radio Times Archives] The late Eric Lomax was a British soldier tortured as a POW by the Japanese in WWII who later came to meet and forgive one of his torturers. His memoir, The Railway Man, has been adapted into a feature film of the same name starring Colin Firth and Nicole Kidman. Earlier this month, Marty talked to PATTI LOMAX, Ericâ€™s widow, played by Kidman, who helped facilitate the meeting of the two former enemies, and ANDY PATERSON, the screenwriter and producer of the new film.
