There are few occasions in history when we can say that 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. To mark the Anniversary of the Battle of Britain, arguably the most important event in modern British history, brothers Colin and Ewan McGregor present a ninety minute special for BBC1 leading us through the timeline of events during the height of the Battle. 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. They will take to the skies over Southern England as Spitfires and Hurricanes once again fly over the White Cliffs of Dover. They discover the legacy of the Battle and reveal the inspiring personal stories of the few who were there and those still with us today. Using great aerial footage mixed with impressive historical archive film material this is truly the definitive programme on the Battle of Britain.

Ewan was able to capture the fascination and excitement of the ordinary person. Colin captured the heart of the story following in the footsteps of the heroes who went before him.
It just seems wrong not having Colin on the cover. Maybe it is because he represents the past and present members of the armed forces. This documentary was not about celebrity but about the sacrifice of those who bought our freedom with their lives.
This is a thoroughly enjoyable documentary film and one which will be enjoyed by both those viewers who know a thing of two about the Battle of Britain and those that know very little - and that's a great credit to those involved with making it. Ultimately it means that all those who watch it with once again look with awe and pride at what these men achieved under very trying conditions all those many summers ago.
The filming of the progression of Colin McGregor to become a Spitfire pilot is exemplary and the chemistry between the two brothers is part of the package. I believe that this will appeal to a wide range of people well beyond the Battle of Britain buffs. Exceptional!
