Actually, I've felt a bit jaded by the coverage I've seen. I've certainly lost count of the number of TV presenters being flown in the back seat of a Tr.9, while if it's not a fighter pilot, plotter or radar operator it's very difficult to get a mention.

It's a shame as there is so much to tell about the Battle of Britain that rarely gets mentioned; the Observer Corps, Anti-Aircraft Command, the big wing controversy and the way Dowding and Park were shafted, even the story from the Luftwaffe's side.
