The Battle Of Britain At 75 tells the epic story of the greatest aerial conflict of the Second World War. This two-and-a-half-hour cinema experience comes live from Rizon Jet, Biggin Hill in south-east London, the most iconic of Britain’s fighter stations.
BBC Radio 2’s Dermot O’Leary and Jeremy Vine will be joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra and musicians from across the armed forces as they share rare and untold stories from the battle. Rare archive footage from the conflict, modern-day RAF personnel, guest singers and a cast of actors will bring those stories to life as we remember the men and women who lost their lives 75 years ago.
A 30-minute programme – exclusive to cinemas – will include a close-up tour of a Spitfire and veteran fighter pilots recounting their memories of the Battle Of Britain.
The Battle of Britain at 75 shows across UK cinemas on Friday 18 September, 7.30 and is showing at select Picturehouse Cinemas.
