Taking a page from their coverage of the current war in Iraq, CBC News has produced a commemorative
online news version of D-Day.
Research for the series yielded a “find” — Katharine Hepburn’s June 1944 bi-lingual CBC radio broadcast for the Sixth Victory Loan. Two weeks before her appearance, she discovered that she was to deliver the broadcast in both French and English. (Real Audio file available.) The special also includes “a soldiers letters” and a “photographs from the front” slide show.
This is a beautiful series. What’s missing is an easily found backgrounder on the series; details on inspiration and process would be appreciated.
