Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Summer, 1940. As waves of Luftwaffe bombers and fighters flew across the Channel heading for Southern England they were intercepted with unerring accuracy by squadrons of RAF Spitfires and Hurricanes. The RAF’s ability to find and attack enemy formations was a key factor in winning the Battle of Britain. And at the heart of Britains highly co-ordinated air defences lay a top -secret new weapon – Radar.

Using archive film, authentic combat footage, exclusive interviews and rare wartime public information films, this unique title explains how Britain developed its Radar (Radio Aid to Detection and Ranging) technology and used it as the cornerstone of its defences during the Battle of Britain. Vital information obtained by Radar was filtered through to RAF Operations Rooms which in turn vectored the fighters onto incoming enemy formations.

This DVD also shows how Radar was incorporated into early RAF night fighters such as the Boulton Paul Defiant and Beaufighter, enabling them to hunt enemy bombers at night. Advanced technology was also required to help RAF bombers locate their targets behind enemy lines, and Coastal Command aircraft to hunt ships and U-Boats. This title looks at the development and application of technologies such as ASV, GEE, GEE-H and OBOE, as well as the Mandrel, Moonshine and Window anti-radar technologies which helped to make RAF bombing missions both safer for the crews and increasingly more lethal to the enemy.
