‘Lancaster’ Feature Documentary

I have had the pleasure of working as a consultant and co-producer on this documentary. Numerous veterans have already been interviewed, and the focus now is on air-to-air filming. Herewith is a teaser trailer – enjoy!

LANCASTER – The Feature Documentary

This is the story of the Lancaster told by the men and women of Bomber Command. On this anniversary of the famous Dambusters raid, we’d like to share a ’teaser trailer’ for our new film LANCASTER, brought to you from the team that made SPITFIRE. We’ve been shooting for 18 months to record interviews with Bomber Command veterans, in the UK and across the world. For many it has been the last opportunity to tell their stories. We had awesome air-to-air filming of the Lanc planned, but the current situation has meant that those plans are on hold. But for those of you who’ve seen SPITFIRE, you know it will be worth the wait. Thanks to BBMF for giving us access to Lancaster PA474 and to the Imperial War Museums for permission to use the archive film and 617 Squadron still.

    Dear Mr Nichols, Reading today’s DT Mag and your page appears to be the only way I can pass a comment to anyone concerned with this admirable production.

    Essentially, there is much in the way of utter cobblers, such as “125,000 aircrew… everyone a volunteer”. Er, RAF Bomber Command existed from the formation in 1918. My father signed up for 25 years as a Regular in 1932, retiring in 1957.

    He was in Bomber Command and completed two operational tours and one as an instructor (Ops on Hampdens 50 Sqdn and on a (yes, mostly the same one) Lanc EM-S with 207 Sqdn after they re-equipped from Manchesters. There he crewed as Sqdn/Ldr nav/bombardier with W/Cmdr Geoff Woodward who had received his DFC for piloting a Manchester back from Berlin on one engine; they were difficult enough with two.

    See S/Ldr Gilbert Haworth DFC, DFM. I would love to pass on his un-published memoirs. Time for 25 years peace/war/peace of gen. Many photos! Mostly ‘prohibited’.
