A unique opportunity to take part in this moving D-Day commemoration, broadcast live in HD. On June 6, we mark the 70th anniversary of D-Day. At the Albert Hall, BBC Radio 2's 'Friday Night is Music Night' stages the UK's biggest concert to commemorate the largest amphibious invasion in history. Its hosts are Jeremy Vine, Dermot O'Leary and Louise Minchin, who will re-tell key moments of the Normandy landings. They're joined by a distinguished cast of actors, led by Patrick Stewart as Sir Winston Churchill. Music is provided by the BBC Concert Orchestra and a military band comprising musicians drawn from all three UK Armed Forces. Other performers include Alison Moyet, Beverly Knight and Russell Watson, while Katherine Jenkins will sing a special 'virtual duet' with Dame Vera Lynn. For veterans who are unable to travel to London or France, this special cinema event is the perfect way of joining in.
