Trivia

As there was only one B-17 available, the shot of the bombers in formation was made using multiple exposures. (The same technique was used to show the Colonial Battlestar fleet at the beginning of Battlestar Galactica: Saga of a Star World (1978).) See more »

Quotes

Group Captain Barker: [Barker and Hewitt are walking across the field towards the B-17s] There you are, jack - all safe and sound.
Hewitt: No damm thanks to the RAF!
Group Captain Barker: Bear with me, old boy, it was an honest mistake, Jack - these things happen. I wouldn't say anything about it if I were you.
Hewitt: Don't say anything! One of your fighters almost destroys an American bomber and it's entire crew, and you expect me to keep quite about it?
Group Captain Barker: Just till we get clearance from HQ. You see, in a funny old sort of way, we have to consider morale!

An excellent mini series.
16 June 2004 | by (York, England) – See all my reviews

A superb two parter from John Sullivan. Why did it never go to series when rubbish like 'the office' does? And why oh why is it not available on DVD. If anyone out there can get it tell me! If you have not seen it then I would recommend it. Brilliantly cast and superbly written and performed. EXCELLENT! Martin Clunes is great as Group Captain 'Bare With Me' Barker and bounces wonderfully off Todd Boyce's character. Sam West, played in the modern day by his father, Tim, is a master of comic timing and portrays the cheeky, lovable RAF Squadron Leader Archie Bunting as though he were meant to play him. Over sexed and over here, that is as maybe, but the RAF were at it far before the Yanks turned up.
