The Nation Remembers

Background
A series of programmes to commemorate the 70th anniversary
of the D-Day landings. Broadcast on BBC One over five mornings
and culminating in an all day live event broadcast from Arromanches,
overlooking the beaches of Normandy.
The Challenge
To design the titles and packaging for a daytime audience that brought
the human stories to the fore.
The Solution
By combining both contemporary beach shots and archive WW2 footage, we were able to place the soldiers seventy years ago against the beaches today. We used a red horizon line as a signature within the branding, leading the viewer through the weeks programming.
