Masterpiece Classic: My Boy Jack
Rudyard Kipling's poem "My Boy Jack" is the basis for this touching tale of family and loss. Young Jack Kipling (Daniel Radcliffe) is rejected for service in World War I because of his myopia, but Rudyard pulls a few strings to get his boy into the Irish Guard. Jack rewards his family by overcoming his disability and rising to the rank of lieutenant. But when he goes missing in battle, it begins a lifelong odyssey by his father to find him.
