New BBC Television Programme special
« on: Thursday 17 February 05 21:11 GMT (UK) »

We have received the information below from the BBC regarding a new
television programme 'special'.

"We'll Meet Again will be a 1 hour pre-recorded studio special for BBC 1 to
commemorate the 60th Anniversary of V.E. Day.  It is our intention to
reunite old comrades, friends, sweethearts and war babies who have carried
the memory of each other ever since the war. The programme will tell wartime
stories and then bring the episodes up-to-date with surprise reunions.
We'll Meet Again is an opportunity for the BBC to bridge the gap between
history and entertainment - and to tie in with a whole season of VE Day
themed exhibitions, national celebrations, parades and local street parties
making it a huge event with a lasting impact.

We are currently looking for people who lived through WWII, have a story
that they want to share and would like to be reunited with someone they knew
during this time; old war-time pals, war babies, sweethearts, family members
etc. We will try to trace and reunite some of these people as part of the VE
Day celebrations.  The stories and contacts do not need to be VE Day
specific; they can just be WWII memories".

The programme producers can be contacted by Tel: 08705 12 22 30 or by
