Night Bombers (1981) [DVD (iso)]
This is the only known colour record of the RAF Bomber Command during WWII. This program documents an Avro Lancaster Bombing raid targeting Berlin. Written and narrated in the classic UK (slightly whimsical), understated manner. Provides a detailed account of 'a day in the life' of RAF Bomber Command.
In the winter of 1943-44 RAF Bomber Command was sending massive raids almost every night in to the heart of Germany. This is the story of one of them, an attack on Berlin, probably the most heavily defended target of them all and one which made terrible demands on the courage of the aircrew.
On the long, cold and desperately dangerous missions over Northern Germany and back to a difficult landing in wintry England, thousands of men died or suffered ghastly injuries. One must imagine that they were terrified much of the time, but there is little doubt or anxiety in the brave faces in this film. Although certain scenes had to be re-created for technical reasons, the raid is a real one and there are no actors.
