The BBC has announced that it will mark Remembrance Day with a week of special programming.

According to The Guardian, Crimewatch presenter Rav Wilding will host a series of shows on BBC One daytime in the week before November 14.

The five programmes will include interviews with past and present members of the armed forces along with civilians and families of those who were involved or are currently engaged in conflict.

"Remembrance Week will not only reveal the incredible and emotive stories from individuals who have fought and are still fighting, but also be an uplifting and inspiring series about bravery, camaraderie and companionship," Wilding said.

"As an ex-soldier myself, supporting our troops is important to me so I'm thrilled to be presenting such an important series."

The BBC will also host coverage of the Remembrance Day ceremony.
