The Last Call To Normandy
Living History at its best. We must never forget the lessons learned on D-Day, June 6, 1944. On that fatal day the cost of freedom was born out. We must always remember the thousands who sacrificed.
Ted and team check out warbirds in Florida before flying to England, France and Germany to discover why the invasion of Normandy was such a necessity for the Allies.
The Build Up
Ted and team look at the personal influence these 'friendly invaders' had on the local British population, as soldiers and civilians from democracies of the free world come together.
The Build Up Intensifies
As the build up continues, and Britain is almost at bursting point with troops and machines of war, Ted re-discovers their old camps and embarkation ports along the south coast of the island.
Disaster & Success
In Early 1944, everything looks good for the Allied invasion until a radio mistake results in a grizzly shambles and hundreds of Allied troops are killed before they set foot on the enemy shore.
Out of England, Into France
British, Canadian and American Paratroopers parachute down from the skies and land in the same drop zones as their predecessors did 75 years before.
Beaches and Beyond
The commemoration events in Normandy are a mix of celebration and solemn remembrance as we catch up with veteran paratroopers, and tour the bunkers and beaches of Normandy.
