Hi
This is available on http://www.itv.com/itvplayer/video/?Filter=320255

Not sure if overseas members can get it.

Rick
There is a crew bus shot about 9:30mins in, I don't think it is the usual one.

Hi
Keep an eye open for it to be broadcast on one of your stations.
There were so many antipodeans in Bomber Command surely they will pick up on it, particularly now that there is at last an official memorial to recognize the command.

I hadn't realised that they suffered nearly 50% loss of life over the course of the war.

It is being shown again tonight on ITV at 10.35 pm for those who missed it, I hadn't realised that they never even received a campaign medal. The fighter guys got all the glory it seems, whereas the bomber lads got all the flack both during and after the war! Confused

Pete.

Thoroughly enjoyed the prog but it was clearly a pretty low budget production. Loved the grin on the Pilot's face when he announced 81 ops!

I would have loved to see one of these old stagers airborne again.
