Watch out for “Spitfire Women” coming to BBC Four
I don’t know about you but I had no idea that women flew spitfires during the second world war. But as part of a special season marking the 70th anniversary of The Battle Of Britain, BBC Four will show “Spitfire Women”, a documentary telling the story of the remarkable women who, against all odds, flew planes for the Air Transport Auxiliary from 1939 to the end of the Second World War.
Using archive footage and testimonies from the surviving members and their relatives, Spitfire Women captures the drama, danger and significance of the story of these unsung heroines, who came from across the world to fight for Britain but whose tales of courage and determination remain largely unrecognised.
BBC news just says that the programme is coming soon on BBC Four, so watch out for it as this is clearly worth waiting for.
