Date and timSimon Weston; My Life, My Story, is a truly inspirational show about one man’s journey from the front line of war, being on the edge of death to today being a happy and contented father, grandfather and national treasure.
It was the conflict of a generation and one that many will never forget. On the second of April 1982 Argentina invaded the Falklands Islands with the aim of recapturing them. The Islands, which had been controlled by Great Britain for nearly 150 years, became a battle ground and the UK government were quick to defend both the Islands and the inhabitants.
Amongst those who were sent to the conflict was Simon Weston OBE. He was aboard the RFA Sir Galahad when it was bombed by two Argentine planes. This was a event which would change his life forever.
Guiding him from that fateful day to current times is David Fitzgerald, former Sky news anchor and close friend. There will be highs and lows; questions that only a friend as close as David could ask, with answers only Simon could give.
From his unique perspective Simon will share shocking truths about the conflict, about the day the Sir Galahad was attacked and about the impact the event and its consequences have had since.
