I've seen the complete series. The series was originally made for the History Television up here in Canada. It was filmed on an old wartime base in Picton, Ontario. They came out to the Canadian Warplane Heritage Museum to film with the Lancaster. I liked that they bridged the two generations. Having the younger generation go through the a small portion of the gruelling training/education and hopefully appreciate what their grandfathers had gone through.

It's not a bad series although it does rush through the entire BCATP program. I remember being interviewed for the project and learning about their time schedule of production. The whole thing took around one month to film (From training to trip to Europe).I may have posted something about this series on the forum a long while back.

PS Have you seen "The 13th Mission". A little disappointed that they used a CGI Lancaster.

I liked the attached news doc about Mynarski VC better than the CBC recreation, and that's the second Canadian film that I've seen with the worst Mae west repros.

Mickey (Don Zorniak) on this forum can provide more details.... seems a relative of his did post production work or s/fx I believe.

I watched with my 7 year old son and he loved it. He even favors the young skateboarder (English was his surname) and I think saw a bit of himself in it. It sparked a lot of interest in Lancs around OUR house!

Bomber Boys

I have seen it, and loved it. The scenes with the WW2 Vets and the young lads in training was really touching. You could watch the connection between the generations grow as the boys progressed in their training. I actually enjoyed it more the second time through, since I knew the importance of the connections between the Vets and the new trainees.
