The Two-minute Silence



2009 sees the 90th anniversary of the Remembrance Day two-minute silence, which was first observed on what was then called Armistice Day on the orders of King George V, as a tribute to those who had died during the First World War.

Clare Jenkins hears from five people with their own, very personal, reasons for observing the silence.
