This commission was won by Perspective Productions Ltd. formed by Peter Hylton Cleaver who was the executive producer of the BBC's Air Show series.

It aired on Discovery Wings channel and was based around a day of programming hosted from the Biggin Hill Air Fair.

Martin researched guests, directed on location & cut some of the short VTs for the day's inserts. Most were presenter-led pieces of varying duration.

This was Martin's first full directing credit in 2001 & built on his track record in aviation programming including for the BBC.

Since making this film he has gone on to make more aviation related films for a number of broadcasters.

The highlight was cutting a sequence with the Red Arrows carrying a rare passenger during their breathtaking display. This sort of access is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity.

Broadcaster: Discovery Wings (2001). Production Company: Perspective Productions Ltd.
