5 Brilliant 1950`s BBC TV Series.Brummie46 | 01/11/2011 | See all Brummie46's reviews (8)15 half hour episodes on 3 DVD discs, this series will captivate anyone interested in 50`s documentaries. Compiled from thousands of feet of cine film footage from 1930 to 1950, the series focuses on the role of the RAF prior to, during and after the 2nd World War. Made by the BBC in conjunction with the Air Ministry and other Government departments the film is factual with no frills and is superbly narrated. Footage of the effect of the air campaign on both British and German civilians is also quite extensive. Unlike some Government films of the era (e.g. Land Of Promise) there is no `propaganda material` designed to lift spirits during a time of war. Tells it as it was, brillant black and white film.
