Trivia

The closing epilogue of this TV mini-series states: "Bennett's team became the heart of the R.A.F. Ferry Command. With their American allies they delivered over 25,000 aircraft from Newfoundland, changing the course of the war. More than 500 men and women died flying for Ferry Command. Captain Don Bennett went onto found and lead the Pathfinders, an elite group of pilots who led Allied bombers to their targets in Nazi Germany." See more »

Dreadful
29 October 2006 | by rps-2See all my reviews

This is written after viewing part I. I may not bother with part II. The story is a good one, the creation of Ferry Command in the early, dark years of World War II. But the production is sloppy and melodramatic, peopled with cardboard stereotypes right out of the Hardy Boys and hopelessly contrived situations. The special effects look as though they were done with a Commodorte 64 and there is a huge list of factual errors. For example, BOAC was not formed until after the war. In 1940 it was known as Imperial Airways. There was no such thing as CP Air in 1940. (Canadian Pacific Airlines at that time was a very small regional operation in British Columbia.) The supposedly Montreal homes are obviously in Toronto. Some props (radio equipment, fire extinguishers, thermos bottles, airport tractors and hangars) were blatantly of post war vintage. The portrayals of Churchill and Beaverbrook are reasonably good. The rest is an unfortunate joke. PS/I STAND CORRECTED. BOAC WAS FORMED IN 1940
