    A documentary largely about intruders, but not really!

    A few obvious errors in this doco - the usual one about the Mosquito'e speed and firepower (taking the speed and bomb load of of the bomber version and adding the firepower of the fighter-bomber version).

    Some of the footage is not correct time wise - talking about 1940 and showing RAF Mitchells, for example, or just showing the wrong aircraft - such as showing a P-38 when talking about Mosquitoes strafing an airfield, and a few appearances by Bostons (from the footage of the Philips Raido Works raid in 1942).

    So "BADNITS" is an apt description.

    Very strange, very amateurish, very, very inaccurate - music from "Jesus Christ, Super Star", and Mosquito graphics from an imagination !!
