20201108Paddy O'Connell sets the scene in London's Whitehall for the solemn ceremony when the nation remembers the sacrifice made by so many in the two world wars and in other more recent conflicts.

The traditional music of remembrance is played by the massed bands. After the Two Minutes Silence and Last Post, wreaths are laid at the foot of the Cenotaph by members of the Royal Family, political leaders and representatives of Commonwealth countries, before a short Service of Remembrance. The number of veterans in the March Past is reduced this year, and the streets are not lined by the usual crowds, but the familiar music and movements of the ceremony remain. As the nation marks anniversaries of The Battle of Britain, VE Day, VJ Day and The Korean War, and also reflects on the response to Covid-19, veterans, military personnel, historians and people affected by conflict share their thoughts.

Producer: Katharine Longworth
