The Lanc footage might have been a bit limited to the fact that there would have been no way Ernie and Tim (the 2 Lanc Pilots) would have been allowed to let anyone take-off or land the aircraft (the tricky bits!).
Therefore you've got some lovely air to air footage but he wouldn't have been at the controls for long.
Thought it was a great programme, very moving, and the inclusion of the devastation inflicted in Germany was important in looking at the campaign in a balanced way. Having a 'layman' present it mde it more accessable IMHO. Did nothing to change my respect and admiration for those young men who braved everything.
