Spitfire Women (1×60′) – As part of a special season marking the 70th anniversary of The Battle Of Britain across BBC Four and BBC Two, this one-off documentary tells the story of the remarkable women who, against all odds, flew planes for the Air Transport Auxiliary from 1939 to the end of the Second World War. Using archive footage and testimonies from the surviving members and their relatives, Spitfire Women captures the drama, danger and significance of the story of these unsung heroines, who came from across the world to fight for Britain but whose tales of courage and determination remain largely unrecognised.
