Dan Snow: Last Heroes of D-Day

The Day that changed the world...

There aren't many days that can be said to have changed the course of history, but there aren't many days quite like 6th June, 1944 - D-Day.

What was at stake was nothing less than the freedom of the Western world.

In a major two-part series, Dan Snow examines how two years of meticulous planning, espionage, and the analysis of millions of three dimensional aerial reconnaissance photographs shaped that day.

D-Day is also a powerful and compelling story of heroism, self-sacrifice and determination. This is perhaps the last chance to hear the extraordinary first-hand testimonies of those who risked their lives to save the world from Nazi tyranny.

With unprecedented access to thousands of top secret 3D spy photographs, compelling story telling, state of the art graphics and dramatic reconstruction, Last Heroes of D-Day brings one day in June to life for a new generation.

Dan Snow: Last Heroes of D-Day starts Wednesday 1 July, 7.30pm on SBS ONE.
