BBC Two

The moving story of an extraordinary wartime mercy mission

The programme recounts the forgotten wartime mission of the bombers who flew to Nazi-occupied Holland carrying an unlikely load. Instead of dropping bombs, they dropped thousands of tons of food to save the lives of the millions of starving people cut off by the German forces. We follow the men who took part in the mission and embark on a deeply moving journey to meet the people whose lives they saved 60 years ago.
