  • The True Glory - The making of this classic War Film is described in detail by Trevor Popple.

  • The Potters Bar Incident - April 26, 1941 - Undoubtedly, the Blitz produced numerous ironics, but few quite so remarkable as that which occurred when the town of Potters Bar in Hertfordshire, or more to the point it cemetery, containing the graves of airship crews shot down over the district in the First World War, was bombed by a German raider in the Second. Andrew P. Hyde tells this fascinating story.
  • No Longer Missing - The Search for LW337 - The remarkable search and discovery of Halifax LW337 and how one of its crew, Sergeant John Bremner, was finally laid to rest some 64 years later and is no longer missing.
