    You chaps might be able to see it online, Channel 4 have a web service called 4OD which shows programs after they have screened on the TV channel. This film is part of a series on foreign nationals in British service, first one is about Trafalgar so I will be watching them both 8)

    Failing that you might get it on iTunes (though of course you would have to pay for it).

    Worth noting too, if it goes on 4OD, you will most likely have to wait a few hours after the GMT end time of the program for it to be posted. There's also an interesting looking program on re-creating WW1 dogfights called Fighting the Red Baron, might give that a watch tomorrow and post the link if it's any good...

    Good timing for me. I am currently reading A Question of Honor, about the Polish pilots after the invasion and their service with the RAF.

    I am about 1/3 of the way through A Question of Honor and I would recommend it. It really gives you a better understanding of Poland and the Poles. It also makes you sad to realize that they were basically abandoned after the war.
