Running time: 150 minutes

BBC Radio 2’s ‘The Battle Of Britain At 75’ tells the epic story of the greatest aerial conflict of the Second World War. This live cinema experience comes from Biggin Hill in south-east London, the most iconic of Britain’s fighter stations.

Presenters Dermot O’Leary, Jeremy Vine and Sophie Raworth will be joined by the BBC Concert Orchestra and musicians from the armed forces and guest singers as they share compelling stories from the battle.

Rare archive footage from the conflict, modern day RAF personnel and a cast of actors will bring those stories to life as we commemorate the 75th anniversary.

A 30 minute programme – exclusive to cinemas –  will include a close up tour of a Spitfire and veteran fighter pilots recounting their memories of the Battle Of Britain.

‘The Battle Of Britain At 75’ comes from the producers of the multi-award winning ‘D-Day 70 Years On’. By seeing this event at the cinema you will be supporting RAF service charities, with all profits donated to the Royal Air Forces Association, the Royal Air Force Benevolent Fund and The Battle Of Britain Memorial Trust.
