Niagara city front and centre in D-Day doc

Port Colborne steps into the limelight in the lastest TV show from the History Channel.

Over the weekend, the channel aired an episode of 'D-Day in 14 Stories' which was filmed on Nickel Beach back in October.

Eagle-eyed viewers may even be able to spot students from Port Colborne High standing in for young soldiers on the beaches.

The 75th anniversary of D-Day is this Thursday.

359 Canadians were killed during D-Day.

By the end of the Battle of Normandy, more than 5,000 Canadians would die.
