1 x 2 hours
A gripping ninety minute special for BBC1 presented by brothers Colin and Ewan McGregor to mark the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain – arguably the most important event in modern British history and the only aerial war in world history. Colin is a twenty years served R.A.F veteran and war hero - Ewan a hero of the big screen and fledgling pilot himself. Together they will take us on a journey to honour the heroes of 1940 both on the ground and in the air bringing the story of the Battle of Britain to a new generation. On the seventieth anniversary of the Battle of Britain it’s the right moment, and perhaps the last moment, to meaningfully revisit this famous chapter of our history and reveal to a BBC 1 audience of millions the story of the RAF and Britain’s “finest hour”.
