Nicholas Witchell sets the scene in London's Whitehall for the solemn ceremony when the nation remembers the sacrifice made by so many in the two World Wars and in other more recent conflicts. The traditional music of remembrance is played by the massed bands and, after the Last Post and Two Minutes Silence, Her Majesty the Queen lays the first wreath on behalf of nation and commonwealth. The Bishop of London leads a short Service of Remembrance, then, during the March Past, both veterans and those involved in present conflicts throughout the world share their thoughts.

Producer: Stephen Shipley.
