Castles in the Sky (BBC) DVD


Castles In The Sky’ tells the previously untold remarkable story of the fight to invent RADAR by Scotsman Robert Watson Watt and a team of British scientists. It conveys the genuine human drama behind the invention which saved the nation in the 'Battle of Britain.' Eddie Izzard joined the project because he was so inspired by the character and story: “I feel very privileged to be playing the role of Robert Watson-Watt. Hopefully our production will allow him along with Arnold 'Skip' Wilkins and their team to finally take their places in the pantheon of British greats of World War II as the inventors of RADAR.

When Robert Watson-Watt (Izzard) pioneered his radar system that could detect the enemy during war, he hand-picked a team of meteorologists to help him convince the powers that be that it could really work. Struggling on a very small budget and battling personal issues Watson-Watt continued to fight for his dream and by 1939 had developed the world's very first radar system which went on to prove invaluable in winning the Battle of Britain.
