A programme to commemorate anniversary of the Battle of Britain, told through the technology, the heroes of the time and the spirit and determination of the British people.
2010 marks the anniversary of the Battle of Britain – this film marks this important occasion, paying tribute to all those who ended Nazi intentions of gaining control of the British skies prior to landing some 30,000 troops on the shores of southern England.
13 Hours That Saved Britain explores the events of a single day, 15th September 1940 – the day Churchill described as the ‘crux of the battle’, a day that is now celebrated as Battle of Britain Day. Dramatic colour film footage of aerial combat combined with contemporary interviews will illustrate that the events of seventy years ago still resonate with a new generation.
The documentary is a gripping and powerful account of the pilots of Fighter Command who defended Britain in the summer of 1940 and the strong arm behind the shield, a nation united to defend its freedom and pave the way for the eventual victory.
