World War One Re­mem­bered: The Ceno­taph 10am, BBC One

The Guardian - The Guide - - Audio - PH

David Dim­bleby in­tro­duces cov­er­age of the re­mem­brance cer­e­monies at the Ceno­taph, which will in­clude a pro­ces­sion in­volv­ing 10,000 mem­bers of the pub­lic. At 9.30pm on BBC Two, there’s a pre­miere of Peter Jack­son’s star­tling doc­u­men­tary They Shall Not Grow Old which, via colourised footage from the west­ern front and lip-read­ings of the sol­diers, adds a har­row­ingly per­sonal di­men­sion to the war’s barely be­liev­able lev­els of car­nage.
