    Hey! What a concept! A History Channel that actually deals with History! Not friggin' "Ice Road Truckers" or "A world without People".

    They oughta try that over here in the states.

    Well since I made it I'll be able to tell you when it gets to DVD, no worries. It airs again on Anzac day, in the afternoon apparently. Different times for different states. (daylight savings time is confusing sometimes) I appreciated the comments guys, means a lot to me. If you have any questions, fire away. Talk soon guys

    Thanks guys. Took me 5 years of work to make since it was funded by me, so its great to hear it was well recieved. By the way Micdrow, those two links are only the trailers, the actual doco is an hour long and aired in Australia and New Zealand only, hopefully one day it will be seen in the states, but the general consensus is that its too Australian oriented, so no other markets will pick it up. I'll keep pushing it forward and who knows...talk soon all.

    I dont know why there wouldnt be interest, The history channel here plays Wings over the Luftwaffe series which covers nothing but luftwaffe aircraft and then there is another series that covers nothing but russian aircraft.

    Hey guys, Micdrow I haven't approached the U.S History Channel, because when I approached the U.K one they said they wanted more U.K oriented programmes...go figure...(I thought the Spitfire was a british as you could get) but I'll have to look into the U.S History Channel, I guess if you lot rang up your respective channel and asked for it, they would be more open to showing it maybe. I just want to show it to as many people as I can to see if I did a good job at it.

    I've started a blog, maybe that will get some attention?
