Watch the second of Tim Backshall's reports on Gallipoli, and the regiments from Cumbria, and the south of Scotland, who fought there:
The Pennine Way was created fifty years ago today.
On April 24 1965, Tom Criddle Stephenson, a journalist and rambler, succeeded in his mission to bring a long distance path to the UK.

Members of the public are being asked to help a Tree Health Officer to record instances of Ash Dieback in the South of Scotland.
Steve Morgan is surveying the region for the disease, which kills Ash trees.
Among the symptoms are:
- Discolouration of tree trunk
- Diamond shaped lesions in bark
- Leaf loss
- Crown dieback
Anyone looking to report suspected cases of ash dieback can report it at http://www.forestry.gov.uk/
A tree health officer is being employed in the Scottish Borders to record cases of a deadly disease.
Steve Morgan has been tasked with recording instances of Ash Dieback in the region.
The Forestry Commission hope to use land surveys to shape policy on how to deal with the spread of the disease.
It was first discovered in the UK in 2012 but Steve Morgan says it's currently unclear how widespread it is.
What we are finding with the surveys so far is that there is no rhyme nor reason or logic to the disease in terms of levels of infection, how many trees are infected in a stand.
We simply don't know how widespread it is yet, and how the disease is going to progress. In Europe it can hit some of the stands and really hit them quite severely. We are in a very infancy stage. We are in a research stage of finding out".
A Borders-based timber company's expansion plans could create more than 50 new jobs in Selkirk.
Oregon Timber - who are based at Dunsdale Haugh - want to take over the nearby former Co-op home furnishing store which closed last summer.
Oregon, who supply timber frames for house-builders such as Cala, Miller and Dawn, already have a 100-strong workforce in Selkirk.
The firm has applied to Scottish Borders Council for planning permission to change its use from retail to a timber manufacturing facility.
Documents lodged with the application state the new factory will have a proposed employment of 53 staff.
"The sole aim of making this application is to pursue the company's desire to acquire additional space suitable for the proposed expansion of its current timber frame manufacturing facility in Selkirk."
Borders General Hospital has asked the public to avoid visiting this weekend"unless absolutely necessary" following an outbreak of norovirus.
The Department of Medicine for the Elderly at the hospital is currently closed to admissions and two bays in Ward 4 are also closed.
In addition, two bays at Haylodge Hospital in Peebles have been closed due to patients experiencing symptoms of the winter vomiting bug.
If visiting this weekend is absolutely necessary, staff have warned that visits should be limited to two visitors per patient at any one time and that visits with children are being actively discouraged.
In order to safeguard vulnerable patients and enable us to limit the spread of this highly infectious virus, members of the public are being asked not to visit relatives and friends at the BGH this weekend unless absolutely necessary.
“The hospital can be very busy at the weekends with visitors. In order to control the spread of Norovirus we urge the public to comply with our request and to stay away from the hospital.
"The D&V illness is usually over within 48 hrs, but is highly infectious, which is why NHS Borders needs to limit the number of people moving in and out of the hospital.
"The last time we issued a request of this nature the co-operation from the public was incredibly helpful, and we would be most grateful once again for people to take our advice and please stay away.”
Prince Charles called for the "heroism and humanity" of "both sides" to be remembered as he spoke at an event to mark the 100th anniversary of the Gallipoli campaign.
After laying a wreath at the service, the Prince of Wales said: "We must remember the heroism and humanity of those on both sides who had to leave behind their families from cities, villages and farms around the world to come here and confront the horrors they did - and in an appalling number of instances, never to see their loved ones again."
Charles, alongside Prince Harry, met relatives of veterans during remembrance events on the Turkish peninsula this morning.
Nearly 60,000 allied troops and 87,000 Turks died in the campaign.
