Across the week various channels will be marking the 75th anniversary of the D-Day landings, which happened on 6th June, 1944.

On Channel 4 tonight, Guy Martin will be attempting to recreate the landing in his own way. He is restoring a Douglas C-47 Dakota cargo plane, undergoes parachute training with the Red Devils display team and the Parachute Regiment, and finally will be jumping into Normandy itself.

Along the way survivors of D-Day talk about their experiences on the day.

Guy Martin’s D-Day Lading is on Channel 4 at 20.00.
