New BBC Series - UNFORGOTTEN
BBC Two has commissioned a new three-part series from Blink Films, which reveals the personal stories of ordinary people caught up in some of the most extraordinary events in our recent history.
Would YOU like to reunited with someone from your service in the Armed Forces?
Did a fellow soldier save your life or help you during a challenging time in Combat?
Blink Films are looking to speak with Falklands Veterans. They are also interested in reaching out to veterans of other conflicts in recent British history including the Gulf War, Northern Ireland, Suez, and Korea who are interested in taking part in this new BBC Two series.
Each week Unforgotten, presented by Anita Rani, will explore the experiences of two people thrown together by a major event in modern history - a war, natural disaster or terror attack - who have since become separated.
The series accompanies them on a journey of discovery, as they follow a trail of evidence - from newspaper cuttings to video archive, personal records and advice from relevant experts and social historians - as they try to find the individual who helped them.
Patrick Holland, Controller, BBC Two, says:
This promises to be a brilliantly moving and illuminating social history format, taking us into the moments that have made our modern world, revealing the impact of chance encounters that radically change lives.
Justine Kershaw, co-Founder and Creative Director at Blink Films said:
By focusing on the personal stories of people caught up and then separated by extraordinary events, Unforgotten provides viewers with a uniquely emotional and relatable take on key moments in our recent history. We’re thrilled to have the series presented by Anita Rani, who brings genuine empathy to human stories and the incredible emotional reunions Unforgotten will provide.
