Did You Know?


In the documentary Douglas Bader is given credit for being in charge of 12th fighter group during the Battle of Britain and devising the "Big Wing" formation. The 12th fighter group was commanded by air vice marshal Trafford Leigh-Mallory who was also the father of the "Big Wing" - not Bader, who never rose above the rank of group captain and fought the battle as a pilot. Bader was a supporter of the "Big Wing" and a friend of air vice marshal Leigh-Mallory's though. See more »

An entertaining journey of discovery.
30 October 2010 | by (Scotland (UK)) – See all my reviews

Colin and Ewan McGreggor explore the history of the Battle of Britain.

There's been many documentaries on the Battle of Britain, but this one is a refreshing new perspective. Yes, the history is covered and quite rightly too, but as a discovery Colin and Ewan meet some of the few pilots who are still with us; the few of the few. They visit some of the key places where decisions were made. Talk with experts about the Battle of Britain, revealing how the RAF were able to rebuild their numbers after having been almost decimated.

Some of the aircraft from the Battle of Britain Flight are shown, with the modern pilots talking over the aircraft; both the Hurricane and Spitfire. Further Colin, an ex-RAF Tornado pilot, is trained to fly a Spitfire.

Watching the brothers not only present, but their involvement in the learning process, separates this documentary. Compelling viewing.
