Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very well done. There is little substitute for eyewitness accounts of ordinary Brits during such a day and this does very well with such interviews along with actual footage and explanation of events.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent! Excellent video. Very enjoyable and well made. Amazing to hear the stories from these surviving eyewitnesses who lived through one of the greatest turning points in world history. Going to mark September 15th on my calendar.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from "Dramatic color film footage" So this entire "documentary" with its "dramatic color film footage" is just interviews stitched ontop of Battle of Britain (1969) movie scenes. Yeah I bet it is "dramatic", it is from a drama. This also means that all the historical inaccuracies from that movie are just reused in this "documentary", with notable examples such as completely wrong vehicles being used by the Germans. The fact that this sham of a documentary has ended up on Wondrium is a shame, and Magellan remains one of my least favorite parts of this website.
