Thanks Dave. Repeated 2200 -2300 on Thursday as well. Have set our timer for that as we are often playing back around 1930 to 2100.
I am also interested in and collect 00 model railway. My avatar is Bruiser, he has cauliflower ears!

Thanks for the heads up - I was interested both because I have an interest in Radar and because my childhood home is only about 100yards from the Kenley Aerodrome perimeter - we used to find bits of incendiary bombs and other shrapnel digging in the garden.

TBH it was something of a disappointment, the usual over amazed presenter telling us at great length nothing that most people hadn`t already heard a dozen times and only a short mention of Kenley with shots of the dispersal areas and the runway but little to give you an overall idea of how it was Eighty years ago.

Sorry to sound negative but I found it typical of current TV history programmes, long on waffle and condescension and short on facts.

I think the previous post sums it up very well. I didn't expect too much, so I suppose I wasn't too disappointed!
