World War One Remembered from Westminster Abbey

Huw Edwards introduces a special candlelit service from Westminster Abbey that marks the moment the war began 100 years ago. The Abbey moves from light into darkness, until one candle remains at the Grave of the Unknown Warrior, which is extinguished at 11.00pm, the exact time war was declared, reflecting Sir Edward Grey's famous remark that 'the lights are going out all over Europe'. Communities across the country join, as the nation comes together for an hour of reflection.
