The McGregor boys are delightful hosts of this very interesting documentary. Hearing from the WWII vets (one is 97) is a treat.

Fascinating documentary on the Battle, seventy years on. Ewan is joined by his former RAF officer brother Colin to take a look at the planes, the pilots, the support network, and the history of the Battle of Britain. Having known quite a bit about that part of the war, there were still new things I picked up here. And it's always spectacular to watch Spitfires and Hurricanes in flight.
