Ewan and his brother Colin, an RAF pilot, will help to mark the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain for the BBC. The 90-minute documentary will air in September. According to Broadcast (via Best of Ewan) "the brothers will fly across the skies of England in Spitfires in the one-off BBC1 documentary, The Real Battle Of Britain, guided by surviving pilots, radar operators and ground-crew from the war."
In a statement, Ewan said: 'The Battle Of Britain was a dramatic turning-point in the history of the Second World War and a defining moment in world history.
'It is a privilege for Colin and I to make this documentary; not only to mark the 70th anniversary itself, but to be able to pay tribute to the courage and sacrifice of those who fought during the battle.' [Monsters and Critics]
