Dam Busters

Dam Busters

Details

Live at the Royal Albert Hall on stage will be special guests including family members of both Dam Busters crew and the film’s director Michael Anderson, historian Paul Beaver and Professor Hugh Hunt as they explore the history of the iconic raid and how it led to the making of a classic British film. The audience will include former members of the iconic 617 Squadron as well as current members of the Royal Air Force. Also witness an on stage ‘bouncing bomb’ experiment as we reflect on the science behind Barnes Wallis’ invention. This section will end with a stirring rendition of The Dam Busters March by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.

The live introduction is followed by the Dam Busters (1955); the film was based on the legendary true story of Commander Guy Gibson and his squadron, it captures all the thrilling action and suspense of the magnificent exploits of a group of young pilots and their crews, charged with taking out the supposedly impenetrable Ruhr river dams of Germany with an ingeniously designed bouncing bomb.
