VE Day 75: The People’s Celebration
75 years ago today, World War II ended in Europe, with the loss of over 70 million lives, we can now stand together to say thank you and remember the bravery and courage of that generation.
Tonight a BBC One special will feature Welsh soprano Katherine Jenkins, actor Adrian Lester and singer Beverley Knight, who will be performing some well-known songs from the 1930s and 40s. The programme will culminate in the nation being invited to sing along to a rendition of wartime classic We'll Meet Again.
