Remembrance Day has been and gone but there are still programmes coming out about it.

Arguably it is appropriate that this documentary came after the 11th November, as it deals with the aftermath of the war, and how the war cemeteries came to be designed and built. Dan Cruickshank examines the history of these places and how one man, Fabian Ware, faced resistance at the time when he came up with his plans.

Dan Cruickshank’s Monuments of Remembrance is on BBC Four at 21.00.
