Battle of Britain

To mark the 70th Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, brothers Colin and Ewan McGregor present a 90 minute special leading us through the timeline of events during the height of battle.

There are few occasions in history when we can say the actions of a few changed the destiny – not just of a country - but of the world.

The Battle of Britain is one of those moments.

Colin is an R.A.F veteran of twenty years' service - Ewan a hero of the big screen and fledgling pilot himself. Together they 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.
