248 - The Real Lord Of The Flies

In 1954,William Golding wrote a book about a bunch of boys going nuts when they were stranded on an island. But just over a decade after that fictional novel was published, it actually happened! And the real life boys behaved in a very different way to their fictional counterparts. This is an amazing story of survival, friendship and a little bit of luck!
