Enemy Coast Ahead! This week we commemorate the 80th anniversary of Operation Chastise as we look back at 1955’s The Dam Busters, with very special guests Al Murray and James Holland. Directed by Michael Anderson the film follows 617 Squadron into action with a large cast led by Richard Todd and Michael Redgrave. Climb aboard the Lancaster and ready the spot lamps as we discuss everything from Richard Todd as Gibson to Mrs Wallace’s chandeliers, and everything in between, we tackle it all in this week’s show!
