    Tune in: Friday, October 31 @ 8:00 PM ET/PT

    During the summer of 1940, the world held its breath and watched, as the British RAF and German Luftwaffe were locked in a battle to the death. It will last 114 days, take down almost 3000 aircraft, kill or wound 3800 aircrew and lead to the death of over 30,000 civilians. The German Nazi war machine had conquered all in its path, only Britain stood in its way to total European domination. Both British and German aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time have now been layered over a three dimensional contour map to create a CGI model of the battle. We use cutting edge technology, unique archive film, re-enactments and extraordinary interviews with the men who were there to tell the story of this historic battle.
