So, that's it. I've finished shooting the TV program about my late father and his role in WW2. He was in 192 Squadron, based in Norfolk, flying in Wellington and Halifax bombers from 1943-45.
It was an incredible journey and I really hope the end result is worth a watch.I was blessed with a really good crew, very sympathetic researchers and director who weren't looking for 'the crying celebrity' shot when they discovered something about their father's war time history.
That said, if the show retains it's working title of 'Hero in my Family' I think it will be well deserved. My dad is a hero, an incredibly brave man, who despite seeing his peers blown to bits and burnt to death around him, continued doing the task he set out to do. We even discuss the controversy of the late stage bombing campaign carried out by Bomber Command and the American Air Force.
I hope you get to see the show, it's going to be broadcast sometime in May, as soon as I have exact dates I'll be blathering on about it big time.
