This Media Network was broadcast on 6th May 1982. It focussed on the Falklands "conflict", as the BBC called it. Remember it is just over a month after the young Argentine forces landed. British Forces Broadcasting Service got airtime from one of the BBC Ascension Island transmitters to broadcast a request show to the Falklands Fleet. The photo in the insert was taken in the city of La Plata, Argentina just south of Buenos Aires. There was a memorial there to the Malvinas dead from the Argentine side. There is also a national memorial in the centre of Buenos Aires, opposite the now derelict "English Tower".
