THE DAM BUSTERS WITH DAN SNOW: LIVE FROM THE ROYAL ALBERT HALL (12A)

May 17th 7:15 pm

 

Regarded as a British classic, The Dam Busters is directed by Michael Anderson (Logan’s Run/Around the World in 80 Days). Based on the legendary true story of Commander Guy Gibson and his squadron, The Dam Busters (1955) captures all the thrilling action and suspense of the magnificent exploits of a group of young pilots and their crews, charged with taking out the supposedly impenetrable Ruhr river dams of Germany with an ingeniously designed bouncing bomb.

Live at the Royal Albert Hall, Dan Snow is joined on stage by the Glenn Miller Orchestra plus special guests including family members of both Dam Busters crew and the film’s director Michael Anderson, historian Paul Beaver and Professor Hugh Hunt as they explore the history of the iconic raid and how it led to the making of a classic British film. The audience will include former members of the iconic 617 Squadron as well as current members of the Royal Air Force. Also witness an on stage ‘bouncing bomb’ experiment as we reflect on the science behind Barnes Wallis’ invention. This section will end with a stirring rendition of The Dam Busters March by the Glenn Miller Orchestra.

Cert: 12A
Running time: 142 mins
