I was going to write a longer blog post on the 70th anniversary of D-Day, but I have been so impressed with the BBC coverage that I have instead posted a series of links to its website.
Throughout 6 June 2014, the BBC has shown live coverage of the events being held to commemorate the 70th anniversary of D-Day on BBC News 24, its 24 hour news channel, including many interviews with veterans. It has also broadcast significant coverage on BBC1, its main channel.
Other articles on the BBC’s website include:
“Love this: 89yr old veteran reported missing by care home who said he can’t go to Normandy for #DDay70 remembrance. We’ve found him there!”
The coverage obviously concentrated on British veterans, but it made it clear that people from many countries participated.
Coverage from other British media outlets include:
The Guardian (left wing quality newspaper).
Daily Telegraph (right wing quality newspaper: there is a restriction on the number of articles you can read per month).
Sky News (the other UK 24 hours news channel, owned by Rupert Murdoch).
