Bomber Boys: The Fighting Lancaster
For further distribution information, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org
Using a unique blend of living history elements, first-person interviews, CGI and never-before-seen footage from the Second World War this series follows a new generation of young men – all of whom are descendents of WWII veterans - as they undergo training to become a Lancaster aircrew. While these new recruits struggle to come to terms with 1940s discipline, we hear the harrowing anecdotes of the “real” Bomber Boys - the veterans who flew into the night skies over Occupied Europe to fight in some of the most critical battles of the war.
As the two groups come together for a flight in one of the world’s only operating Lancasters and a visit to some prominent European war sites, a special bond emerges, building a bridge between the generations and giving new understanding to the experiences of those who fought in the Second World War.
