D-Day 75

In late Spring 1941, The world has been at war for almost 5 years. 3 years earlier, Britain’s Prime Minister had promised the tide was turning for the allies.

Prime Minister Winston Churchill, knowing what lay ahead in the weeks to come, addressed the nation on May the 26th, just 11 days before D-day. This top-secret operation was slowly, carefully, revealed to a war weary public through an incredible series of ground breaking radio broadcasts.

In this Original Forces Programme we portray D-Day through the extraordinary recordings made of new reports and speeches from heads of states and key military leaders.

This compelling, dramatic and atmospheric programme is all about D-Day’s ‘Sound Stories’.
