The Real Magnificent Men in Their Flying Machines

9pm, BBC2

Chocks away if you dare. When you fly a microlight, says writer, ungifted pilot and still-having-nightmares crash survivor Antony Woodward, you are trusting your life to what is "effectively a chainsaw attached to a deckchair". As for hitting turbulence in these tiny aircraft, it's like being stuck in a washing machine that has been turned on, especially when it rains. So what's the attraction? Director Charlie Russell's documentary – which follows a trio of teams competing in a Round Britain Rally, and at various points deals with friendships, family and solitude – suggests it is about adventure and the freedom of the skies.
