Originally we were going to include the Battle of Britain in the first part of the programme, so my involvement was to help with filming a pilot called Bob Doe, one of the Few. Although this whole section ultimately disappeared in the edit for time considerations, I was so impressed by Bob that when I went to Scottish Television a few months later I pitched a programme for the Secret History series about The Few, which was subsequently commissioned and made for Channel 4 (and I got to meet Bob again!). The loss from the War Walks programme was unfortunate, though certainly that film ended up all the better for it - enjoy!
