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!

Superb
3 August 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This was a brilliant mini-series, both funny and nostalgic. Martin Clunes at his very, very best as are all the cast members. I would imagine that it was a lot of fun to film! The friendly rivalry between the Brits and the Americans provides some absolutely hilarious moments. There are some great one-liners and 'throwaway' lines that provide such wonderful humour, which is only to be expected with the writer being John Sullivan. With every other series, play, etc being released on DVD, why has this one not been released? If you haven't seen this, if you ever get the chance, do so - this is a Must See!!!! Please, please release this as soon as possible - I am getting withdrawal symptoms..................
