A much loved British Classic, The Dam Busters has been stunningly restored for future generations to enjoy. Michael Anderson's 1955 drama captures the tension and bravery of an audacious raid on the centre of Nazi Germany's industrial complex and the quintessentially English combination of inventiveness and dogged determination. Split into 2 sections, the film deals first with the fraught, but ultimately successful development of a new bomb, by Dr. Barnes N. Wallis (Michael Redgrave). The second deals with the ission itself during the British Raid on the Ruhr Dams, and it's associated costs for the enemy and the British airmen.
