Well worth the watching - very very witty indeed. One of my all time favourites - Looked for it on DVD and never managed to find it. My 25 year old VHS copy is getting very dodgy.

IIRC it was first shown in April (Easter?) 1996. I only remember this because I taped it (remember doing that?) and took it over to RAF Laarbruch with me two months later and watching it again with some new mates I made in the Mess who hadn't seen it in BFG.
Hard to believe that is 25 years ago now!

Barker: Have you heard about Pearl Harbour Archie?

Bunting: Is she the girl from the laundry Sir?

The "Found that Film" site is not friendly, won't take my money for the DVD, must be an easier way ?.

I'd suggest to use search engines, you'll come up with options, eg https://www.myrarefilms.co.uk/store/...e_-_1996.html#

Note that I have not bought anything from those sites, so can't say anything regarding availability nor reliability.

I bought a DVD copy several years ago from found that film - It was a home made DVD transposed from a VHS recording from the TV - the quality was very poor - worse than my own VHS copy.

In these days of CGI it is great that real aircraft were used in making this. At 46 mins there is the sequence of the attack by two Bf109s. These were genuine DB605 engined 109's, albeit one of them re-engined from a Buchon. The sequences were filmed at Sculthorpe. The initial takes of the head-on shot were lower and the pilots were asked to fly it a little higher so that they did not have to climb to go over the camera car (the cameraman was on the roof). For the shots around the buildings the pilots requested that a flag pole at the end of one of the huts was removed because it was a collision risk; the request was duly granted. What great fun days ....
