On this day: May 30th

Today in TV

1964: The Great War, made in association with Canada's CBC and Australia's ABC, uses archive footage and servicemen interviews over 26 programmes, setting the standard for future war documentaries.
2003: Just over two years after being revived by Carlton Crossroads ends for good, with the whole show revealed to be the dream of a supermarket worker (Jane Asher, who played hotel boss Angel) with her colleagues as customers and other staff.

Further viewing
