Bomber Boys

SBS  |  April 6, 2012

Movie star Ewan McGregor and his aviator brother, Colin McGregor, are presenting this gripping, dramatic and rarely told story of RAF's World War II Bomber Command and the men who fought and died in the skies above Europe - a story of individual heroism and extraordinary collective spirit. This film will tell the six year story of Bomber Command as it transformed itself from a blunt instrument - more dangerous to itself than the enemy - to the cutting edge of the RAF. The two brothers also explore the transformative leaps in technology and skill as the RAF learned how to hit targets across Europe with ever increasing accuracy and far greater force. They will take particular interest in the story of 617 Squadron.
