Video: Dunkirk – The Forgotten Heroes Clip

If you’re feeling historical tomorrow then you might want to tune into Dunkirk: The Forgotten Heroes as this touching documentary tells the story of the thousands of men that were left behind in the Dunkirk evacuation.

Over 100, 000 men were deployed to Dunkirk and 40, 000 of them were captured and kept a secret by our own Government. They endured horrific conditions and by using archive footage and interviews with survivors, the film gives an insight into the horror and the heartbreak of war.

As part of the ‘Spirit of the 1940s’ season, Dunkirk: The Forgotten Heroes is definitely one to watch and you can catch it on Friday 28th May 2010, 5pm on the Yesterday channel.
