D-Day: Minute By Minute (2021): Part 02 – Victory


Critically acclaimed two part stripped special, celebrating the bravery and heroism of 06 June 1944, during World War II.

The first 24 crucial hours of D-Day is told – minute by minute- by the last surviving men who witnessed horrors and victory unfold. Diaries and stories, told by those left behind, recount the personal experience of the men who were there.


The events of 06 June 1944 from 7.30am onward, when British and Canadian forces landed with the Americans pinned down on Omaha Beach. Historians Max Hastings and Onyeka Nubia give context to the veterans’ stories and explain the slow German response, with tank units only to be released on Hitler’s orders and, on that fateful day, he slept late and no one dared disturb him.
