From the makers of "The Second World War in Colour" and "Britain at War in Colour", ITV1 comissioned this one off special to commemorate the 60th anniversary of the D-Day landings.
John Hurt, replacing the late John Thaw, narrates this documentary which uses original colour film, as well as extracts from letters and diaries, to illustrate the story of D-Day. British, European and North American witnesses - combatants and civilians - also recount their experiences of events surrounding the amphibious invasion.
Syopsis taken from Radio Times 5th - 11th June 2004
