WW1 Filming

July 25th, 2014 by Libera

As part of the BBC commemoration of the centenary of World War 1, Libera travelled to France and Belgium in May to film a special 'Songs of Praise' programme for transmission on Sunday 3rd August at 4 25pm on BBC2.

The programme makers researched the history of some of the boys' families, and discovered that many of them had ancestors who had fought in the conflict.

The boys located the memorials to their relatives who died in the war - some had marked graves, others had no known grave but had their names carved into the Thiepval monument which contains over 72,000 inscriptions.

They also visited Ypres and Sanctuary Wood to film performances of Libera songs.
