Look North remembers 1969 Emley Moor mast collapse

Today marks the 50th anniversary of the collapse of the Emley Moor transmitter in Yorkshire. Tonight’s edition of @BBCLookNorth looks back at the events of 19th March 1969.

The lunchtime edition of Look North provided a short preview of the full report coming up in the evening edition, and promised footage that has never before been broadcast.

If you live outside the Yorkshire region, you can view the programme shortly after transmission via the BBC iPlayer, or live on Sky channel 956 from 6.30pm tonight.
