A trully magnificent story retold in this BBC drama,
This review is from: First Light (BBC) [DVD] (DVD)
Thankfully i caught this spell binding WW2 drama on BBC2 on the evening of the 22October 2011 and was able to watch it in magnificent HD.
On watching it one would think those beautifull Spitfires were a fairly common sight but unfortunately no.
All the costumes, vehicles and atmosphere of 1940 are captured to perfection as only the BBC know how and for those unfamiliar with what life was like for the young airmen its a dvd well worth watching.
Everything is handled magnificently and for the very first time on BBC television the colourfull language only increases ones enjoyment of the drama and that is a very rare event indeed.
It just showed how lucky or unlucky certain airmen were when nobody really knew if their time was up and if they were going to return.
Skill, judgement and extreme luck were the only thing that kept you alive and the story made me soon realise just how much who owe these young pilots for saving us from Nazi tyranny.
The airiel displays of the magnificent Spitfire are reason enough to purchase this lovely dvd but the story and the way it is told will make this BBC drama one to remember and enjoy during every viewing.
