Season 38, Episode 12 My Boy Jack

First Aired: April 20, 2008

David Haig wrote and stars in "My Boy Jack," a sobering, well-acted story of Rudyard Kipling (Haig) and his son (Daniel Radcliffe), whose efforts to join the British military prior to WWI are rejected (because of myopia) until his father intervenes. Sent to France, Jack takes part in "the greatest battle in the history of the world." Days later, a telegram arrives informing his family that he's missing, prompting his parents to seek the answer to his fate. Carrie Kipling: Kim Cattrall.
