Rory Bremner joins Dutch veterans

Satirist and impressionist Rory Bremner did not know that his father, Major Donald Bremner, was a World War II hero until he appeared on the BBC programme Who Do You Think You Are.

His investigations into his family history have led him to the Dutch town of 's Hertogenbosch, to commemorate the 65th anniversary of its liberation.

Graham Satchell joined him on his personal journey.
