Simon's Return. For veterans of any war, going back to the battle fields is always a moving experience. For Simon Weston , whose body was 45 per cent burned on the Sir Galahad when it was bombed, going back was an attempt to conquer his recurrent nightmares.
Tonight's programme follows Weston and two other British veterans, John Meredith and Gary Tytler , on a remarkable journey. They travel first to the Falklands where they revisit the battle sites and memorials and then to Argentina where they meet some of the men against whom they had fought. In Buenos Aires, Simon Weston meets the pilot who bombed the Sir Galahad "I want to look into his eyes and see what's there," says Weston "to find out if there is a human being inside."

There are more than 5 million programme listings in Genome. This is a
historical record of the planned output and the BBC services of any
given time. It should be viewed in this context and with the
understanding that it reflects the attitudes and standards of its time
- not those of today.
To read scans of the Radio Times magazines from the 1920s, 30s, 40s and
50s, you can navigate by issue.
Genome is a digitised version of the Radio Times from 1923 to 2009 and
is made available for internal research purposes only. You will need to
obtain the relevant third party permissions for any use, including use in
programmes, online etc.
This internal version of Genome, which includes all the magazine covers,
images and articles as well as the programme listings from the Radio
Times, is different to the version of BBC Genome that is available
externally/to the public. It is only available inside the BBC network.
