Christmas Countdown - 20 December - Adrian Chiles

On this date last year the day's news was dominated by the aftermath of a terrorist attack on a Christmas market in Berlin. But the story I've selected from Adrian's 5 live Daily covers the events from five decades ago, the sinking of the TSMS Lakonia (above) which saw the greatest loss of British lives on a cruise ship since the Titanic. Eyewitness stories mixed with some contemporary archive material create a compelling and moving story of the events of December 1963.
