Was filmed in July. Was a very good program, some nice filming of the BBMF over the splended Lincolnshire countryside.

Shame the BBC re hashed a 10 year old program, very disrespectful to those who lost their live to give the media chance to air their freedom of speech.

To be honest I was appalled at the lack of coverage for such a significant event.

Haven't seen it yet - but interesting the clash of thoughts on the programme from Richard and Jimbo :O
I'm intrigued to see it now!

They're talking about different programmes, one was ITV, one was BBC. The ITV one was about the BBMF, the BBC one about the Battle Of Britain.

Two different programmes, one on ITV, one on the BBC.

Brilliant programme with David Jason and well presented, some very good aerial shots over Lincolnshire.
