The material sat for decades, its unique view of important encounters unseen. Shot from aircraft high above the conflicts, it captures the intense action as Allied forces battled their enemies. Enriched with cutting-edge CGI graphics which create detailed contour maps of the battleground, THE LOST EVIDENCE® sheds new light on some of WWII?s most important engagements.
During the summer of 1940, the world held its breath and watched as the British RAF and German Luftwaffe were locked in a battle to the death. The Battle of Britain would last 114 days, take down almost 3000 aircraft, kill or wound 3800 aircrew and lead to the death of over 30,000 civilians. Only Britain stood in the way of total Nazi domination of Europe.
In this stunning episode, THE LOST EVIDENCE® has unearthed British and German aerial reconnaissance photographs taken at the time and layered them over a computer-animated contour map to allow unprecedented understanding of the world-shaking events and to help understand just what was at stake.
