FEATURES

CHURCHILL AT THE CONTROLS
Winston Churchill was nothing if not a hands-on Prime Minister. He wanted to meet his generals and confer with politicians face-to-face. This meant he was often on the move - usually by air. But, as the RAF crews soon discovered, Winston was not content to be a mere passenger.

BATTLE OF BRITAIN BOMBER FOUND
A unique German wartime bomber has been discovered on the Goodwin Sands, seventy years after it was shot down during the height of the Battle of Britain. Martin Mace investigates the history of this aircraft and how it came to be uncovered on a sand bank in the English Channel.

THOSE THAT DARED
In the summer of 1942, the fledgling Special Boat Squadron was handed one of its most ambitious tasks - Operation Anglo - a task that would help establish its reputation as one of the most daring units of the British Special Forces.

A MEMORIAL TO THE MISSING
Towering over the landscape of the Somme battlefield, the Thiepval Memorial bears the names of more than 72,000 officers and men of the United Kingdom and South African forces who have no known grave. Martin Mace examines the history of this magnificent 150 feet high brick and stone arch.

A GUARDSMAN'S MIRACULOUS ESCAPE IN AFGHANISTAN
A family's good fortune transmits itself through the generations as a set of rosary beads saves the life of a Coldstream Guardsman in Afghanistan - in circumstances, discovered Dave Cassan, that were similar to those which saved his great-grandfather's life in 1945.
