Everyone see it?

Thought it was good, but I recon they could have strung it out to more than one hour.

BBC2 on the 14th? 9pm. Dramatisation of the book First Light by Geoffrey Welhum. BoB Spitfire pilot who eventually had a nervous breakdown in Malta. The book is just excellent, one of the few I have read twice. Think Hat has read it 10 times!

Still available in iPlayer if you missed it.

I enjoyed it, though it was a shame it was so heavily abridged -they could have easily made a short series out of this book, ending up in Malta. Did anyone else notice the added thunderstroms for the Convoy Pair sequence, not the weather described in the book?

They seemed to be reusing a lot of aerial sequences from A Piece of Cake and the Battle of Britain film. Tight budgets at the beeb these days.

Half way thru this now, anyone else watch it and find themselves calling the shots when the guncam shots were on...
