A Story of the Few
Two young school children listen to their grandfather who tells a story of four young people who join the RAF. They learn the importance of Radar, the fear of air raids and the fight against the Luftwaffe before they are caught up in the momentous Battle of Britain itself. Quotes from Winston Churchill’s speeches are used to introduce some of the memorable songs, while the children build a spitfire on the performance area!
