I took BBC Radio Lancashire’s Breakfast Show presenter Graham Liver around the First World War battlefield in Ypres in April.

We were visiting the graves of two of his relatives from Lancaster who were killed within days of each other at Ypres in 1917.

Besides doing nine pieces for the local radio station, we were accompanied on the four day trip by a cameraman from BBC television, reporting for North West Tonight where Graham presents the news programme at the weekend.

Graham also did an exclusive interview for me about his thoughts and feelings during his first visit to the battlefields.
