Little Ships

Written by Rachel on June 3rd, 2010

From the Radio Times:
Thursday 03 June
9:30pm – 10:30pm

To mark the 70th anniversary of the ‘miracle of Dunkirk’, 50 of the surviving ‘little ships’ which made the original perilous cross-channel voyage are returning to France. Dan Snow tells their extraordinary story: their role in the evacuation and the people who struggled to keep them afloat during those fateful days in 1940, when the future of Europe hung in the balance.

Please note, even though Dan’s said on twitter that this is at 9pm, other sources say 9.30pm

    Hello John,
    I’m afraid doesn’t have any contact with Dan or the producers of Little Ships as we are an entirely unofficial website. I can only suggest that you could try contacting Dan through his agent or perhaps the BBC directly to find an answer to your question.
