On the 100th anniversary of the Royal Air Force, watched three good documentaries presented by Ewan and Colin McGregor. 100 years of the RAF, The Battle of Britain, and Bomber Boys. Didn't really learn anything new, but they were well presented, and it was interesting to watch Colin (ex-RAF Tornado pilot) learning to fly a Spitfire, via a Tiger Moth and Harvard in the B of B one.
Then up in the Battle of Britain Memorial Flight Lancaster bomber in Bomber Boys. I got to crawl around inside that as a lad with the Air Training Corps
There was another good wartime aviation documentary on shortly after too, about Operation Jericho; the Mosquito raid on the Amiens jail. I didn't know that spooks (SIS/SOE) had possibly been involved in the planning of that one, and the full story of why the raid took place doesn't seem to be known still.
I'm not a Bible ~thumper, it ranks in my top 10.
on Time Travel and the world's first time machine and London's City Hall plays the museum of Time Travel in it too.
