Warbirds Over Europe- high octane fighter plane action

Narrated by Hollywood star of stage & screen Sir Patrick Stewart, this evocative hour-long documentary approached the air war over Europe in World War 2 in a new exciting way. It combined awe-inspiring ground-to-air & air-to-air camerawork from some of the best aviation cameramen with eye-witness testimony to let the aircraft & the pilots tell the story.

The concept was devised by Gemini Pictures. They are one of the few companies who specialise in the sort of programming that we don't see enough of on terrestrial TV in the UK...aircraft & fast cars!

Employing Gemini Pictures' impressive aviation film library, location filming, historic archive & moving testimony from veterans, Warbirds over Europe brought home the reality of what these brave young pilots achieved in the skies over Europe in the Second World War.

Martin got to spend all day with P51s, Spitfires, Messeschmitts & Thunderbolts & employed his aviation expertise to full effect. A thrilling project to make from a great company.

Broadcaster: Discovery HD Theatre - USA , Discovery Channel - UK (2010) - 1 x 50 minutes historical aviation documentary. Production Company: Gemini Pictures Ltd.
