PBS REVISITS D-DAY

Friday, February 24th, 2023

On 6 June 1944 the Allies finally launched their full-scale assault on Nazi-occupied Europe. What was it like for those who took part in the fighting, with no idea of the outcome and no guarantee of their own survival? Offering the dramatic recollections of those who were there, revealing documentary D-DAY: LAST WORDS (Thursday 2nd, 9.25pm) delves beneath the legends that have grown up around the struggle to secure an all-important foothold on the Normandy beaches.
From a British sailor who laid underwater charges to knock out German defences, to Canadians, Americans, French partisans and German defenders, moving interviews are combined with new-found footage and dramatic reconstructions to place the viewer at the heart of what would come to be known as ‘The Longest Day.’

What the industry says about US

MAIL ON SUNDAY, DMG MEDIA, UK

The Global Listings schedule service works very well for us. We also use the Global Listings weekly and monthly TV highlights as well as the programme amendment documents. The service is very good.

TROS KOMPAS, MAGAZINE PUBLISHERS, NETHERLANDS

The Global Listings press schedules are very good. Especially as we have very little space in the TV Guide sections, these are still very useful to us. In addition, the Global Listings TV highlights documents and press reports are also a great way for us to make choices of what TV programmes to feature.
