The Battle of Britain: 75 Years On

Sev­en­ty-five years ago this week, the Bat­tle of Britain was at its peak, char­ac­terised by the most intense peri­od of Nazi Luft­waffe bomb­ing of Britain that took place between 10 July and 31 Octo­ber 1940. Today we’ll be remem­ber­ing the Bat­tle of Britain with music of the war years, extracts from famous speech­es and news broad­casts, and actu­al­i­ty record­ed at the time includ­ing inter­views with pilots, along with clas­sic film music from movies depict­ing the events, includ­ing scores by both Sir William Wal­ton and Ron Good­win for the 1969 film The Bat­tle Of Britain.
