Upcoming Aviation TV Radio Programme

The guest on Desert Island Discs this morning was Tony Iveson. I only heard part of it, including a very succinct and measured response to the anti Bomber Command Memorial brigade. I will be listening to the repeat on Radio 4 on Friday morning at 0900, and I guess it is also available on "Listen again".

I think not!
Aged 21, he survived being shot down in his Spitfire over the North Sea during his first taste of combat in the Battle of Britain. Unusually for a fighter pilot, he then went on to join Bomber Command and the famous Dambusters squadron, sinking the German battleship The Tirpitz and winning a Distinguished Flying Cross.

Aged 89 he returned to the skies, becoming the oldest man to fly a Lancaster bomber: "Well, I got out of that aeroplane and looked at it and thought how did we do it?" he says. "I know it was a long time ago and I was young and fit and a professional flier. But I thought about some of my friends who had been lost and it was an emotional experience."

In that case I think they are related, Bob Ivesons Daughter was the SATCO at RAF Cottesmore at one stage!

M.F. may be able to clarify!

'Battle of Britain: The Lost Evidence': A bit late in putting this up, but this (repeat) Programme was broadcast at 8.00pm on Wednesday 12th January on Channel 5. Cannot find it on 'Five on Demand'; perhaps it's too early? Try to watch it if you can. Very interesting.'WW2 footage reveals the tactics that won the Battle of Britain, featuring hundreds of aerial photographs taken before and after the conflict'.
