BBC’s Spitfire: The People’s Plane

Posted on: Mon 28 Sep 2020

Courtesy of The Community Broadcasting Association of Australia, we broadcasted the 10 Part series over a period of 4 weeks…   the BBC’s excellent documentary series covering the story of the people who built the plane that helped win a war (WW2)… the legendary Spitfire!

Before a plane could save a country, the people had to build it. This is the story of a beautiful and deadly icon of resistance, built and flown against extraordinary odds.

You can hear all 10 segments at the BBC’s website:
