Clips from Dambusters now on YouTube

I have spent the last year of my life working with an awesome team of people from Windfall Films, Cambridge University and Buffalo Airways to try and recreate the iconic Dambusters raid from World War II.

The film will be broadcast on Channel 4 in the UK on 2nd May and internationally over the coming months. Channel 4 have released a couple of taster clips which were skillfully put together by my producer, Tom Cook, and myself on a …

Confused

My supermarket wants to sell me car insurance. I’m confused.com! What is confusing about that? They’re trying to sell you car insurance in the same way they try to sell you baked beans you daft cow!
