Seems to be a series about foreigners in the British military? Today's focused on the 1400 foreign sailors (including three to five hundred black seamen) in Nelson's fleet at Trafalgar. Thus the title's a bit misleading; - 'Untold' hints at never-before revealed secrets. 'The Forgotten History of...' would have been more honest. Probably worth watching though.

cheers

I agree. It is about non-Brits who helped us in various conflicts. Should still be interesting especially what they do to re-create the air battles...

I thought it was quite well done.
A mix of narration, dramatic reconstruction, graphics and real 'planes. It was difficult to see any transitions.

Used one or more Spanish 109s though which looks a little odd to the trained eye.

You can probably view it again here http://www.channel4.com/programmes/the-untold-battle-of-britain/4od .

Cheers, good link.

Very interesting especially as I've driven past RAF Northolt & the Polish Memorial twice this week.
