Our response

We note that some viewers were disappointed with our coverage of the ‘Two Minute Silence' for Remembrance Day.

The two minute silence at 11am was observed across all BBC broadcasts. The presenter welcomed viewers joining on BBC One for the silence. This meant that we were not able to broadcast the Last Post in full on this occasion.

We always aim to be sensitive and respectful in our coverage.
