In 1954, the BBC produced an outstanding documentary series on aerial warfare from 1935 to 1950, comprising fifteen half hour shows that was aired on the first Monday after Remembrance Sunday.
Taking two years to make, and compiled from nearly 12 million feet of Allied and enemy film footage, there had been little to compare with it in terms of scale, depth and content.
This landmark series represents an important piece of television history and will give every viewer an honest telling of the development of airpower.
Some of the highlights include; amazing footage taken from the nose of a Mosquito during low level attacks, camera's placed on the wings of various aircraft and a dozen other earth grazing operations.
This series will make your hair stand up on end!

It was the Germans who first realised that air power had a signifivant role to play in the Battle of the Atlantic, from 1940 to 1942, but the British soon caught on.
