On June 6th, to mark the 70th anniversary of D-DAY and the battle of Normandy, France 24 will offer a special broadcast dedicated to the ceremonies that will take place throughout the day in Normandy.
On FRANCE24.COM, in addition to the livestreaming of the ceremonies, a liveblog will allow users to get a behind-the-scenes insight in real time. Web users and TV viewers are invited to comment and share their reactions on social networks via the #France24DDay hashtag.
Starting at 3:00am EDT (9:00am Paris Time) on WNYJ, France 24 will propose a special edition dedicated to the national ceremony for civilian victims, presided by French President Hollande at the Caen Memorial.
A second special live edition will start at 8:00am EDT (2:00pm Paris Time) with the international ceremony in Ouistreham in the presence of several Heads of State and Government.
In addition to the 10 journalists who will report all day long from the beaches of Normandy, France 24 will also propose various reports dedicated to the most emblematic characters and places of D-Day: the 82nd Airborne Division, several portraits of North American veterans, the legendary Kieffer commando and the Operation Dingson in Morbihan.
