I would say the focus was deliberately away from the Lanc, as itís all about the Battle of Britain and the anniversary.
Had seen the McGregor one before so avoided it as it felt like a self promotion.

The programme I watched was the first of the new HS2 archeology series, fascinating digging up 60000 Victorian graves with the wooden coffins Surving and the plates too so you knew who they were.
