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 »

Herschel Lenko: I can beat your hand!
Archie Bunting: How do you know?
Herschel Lenko: Call it intuition.

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.
