JG Ballard returns to Shanghai

In 1991 JG Ballard was invited by the BBC programme Bookmark to return to Shanghai to his childhood home and to Lunghua Interment camp for the first time since leaving after WW2.

A highlight of the documentary where Ballard describes returning to his childhood home..

"This little probably as close as I’ll ever come to home.....I’ve really spent 45 years looking for the place, and in many ways this is the most important place in my life, there’s no question about it." - JG Ballard
