News just in. On Friday 17 May, BBC Radio 2 is to spend an entire day devoted to the Dambusters 70th anniversary. Highlights will include:
• Chris Evans broadcasting from the home of the Dambusters – RAF Scampton – and to fly in a Lancaster Bomber
• Interviews with Dambusters veterans Les Munro and George (Johnnie) Johnson, and Barnes Wallis’ daughter, Mary Stopes-Roe
