Follow nurse Jenny Lee and the midwives and nuns from Nonnatus House in this special program. 

At Christmas, when an unexploded World War II bomb is found under a warehouse close to Nonnatus House, the nuns and dozens of local families become homeless. Dr. Turner is in a race against time to immunize children against polio, but when the illness strikes closer to home, he finds there’s nothing he can do but hope. Chummy persuades a royal visitor to the East End to open the new Community Centre. It’s a race against time as Chummy tries to get everything in place for the big day. CALL THE MIDWIFE HOLIDAY SPECIAL airs Sunday, December 29, 2013 at 7:30 p.m. on WXXI-TV.
