BBC Documentary To Tell The Story Of we’re here because we’re here
This live war memorial took place across the UK on 1 July 2016 to mark the centenary of the start of the Battle of the Somme. The event was conceived and created by Turner Prize-winning artist Jeremy Deller in collaboration with Rufus Norris, Director of the National Theatre, and saw hundreds of volunteers dressed as First World War soldiers appear unexpectedly in areas across the UK. It was commissioned by 14-18 NOW and produced by Birmingham Repertory Theatre and the National Theatre in collaboration with 23 organisations.
Tune in and remember one of the most powerful and moving theatre events of the year.
