You've found Father McKenzie. But are you really looking for Eleanor Rigby?

What would our impression of D-Day have been like if reported by the BBC of 2004 instead of 1944?

Visit Silent Running's wickedly satirical BeebVision to find out.

Eisenhower and Churchill have called this the turning point of the war. Yet the very name of this mass landing, "Overlord", suggests some deeper hidden agenda than merely forcing the Germans to retreat.... Indeed they have made their interest in German military and scientific advances well known.

It is obvious that the German war economy is in tatters, and that Germany is short of both manpower and resources and cannot keep fighting for much longer. So why invade, when a telegraph to Berlin may have been equally effective? Sources close to Hitler have let it be known that an option exists for an honourable end to the conflict, so long as a few guarantees have been met.
