In 1941 Dr RV Jones became convinced that the Germans had developed their own radar system that would account for increasing RAF bomber casualties. Eventually an enemy W?rzburg system was located on the cliffs
of Northern France at Bruneval and seizing it would be the solution to overcoming the enemy radar problem. A
joint operation was planned by HQ Combined Ops that would involve all three Services, including the newly
raised and barely parachute qualified C Company, 2nd Parachute Battalion, Commanded by Major John Frost.
In Britain?s darkest hour the success of the Bruneval raid was just what Churchill needed and the information
gained saved the lives of many airmen. In the now established BHTV style, the team revisit the exact locations
where the raid took place seventy years ago to explain this momentous operation?s successes and failures,
making this compulsive viewing for all students of the period.
