Jeremy Deller: We’re here because we’re here

On Remembrance Sunday, 13th November 2016, BBC4 will broadcast a documentary by Jeremy Deller giving an exclusive insight into the live, nationwide memorial that he created to mark the centenary of the start of the Battle of the Somme on 1 July 2016.
Thousands of volunteers embodying soldiers killed on the first day of the war appeared around the country.

For the documentary I followed a group of them in and around London, on public transport, a supermarket, Westfield shopping centre and even Ikea.
