- Program Description
An intimate perspective on events in 1940, when Hitler had Europe at his mercy and Britain stood alone. From Spitfire pilots to teenage evacuees, from Coventry firemen to women and children caught up in the horror of the Blitz, FINEST HOUR recalls in personal and vivid detail the story of that dark and dramatic time when the destiny of the world hung in balance. Told through personal testimonies and until now unseen diaries and memoirs, the program strips away the nostalgic haze and brings to life a shining moment in history.
