Supersonic

on BBC Television

A new documentary by Richard Cawston.
Will the whole of the British Isles soon be covered with sonic bangs as loud as thunder claps?
Will the Anglo-French plan to build the world's first supersonic airliner prove to be a disastrous mistake?
For the first time on television the men directly responsible for the Concord talk about their hopes and their headaches. And their strongest opponents say why the Supersonic Age should be prevented at all cost.
Filmed in Britain, France, and the United States, and including: Sir George Edwards, General Andre Puget, Bo Lundberg, Najeeb Halaby, Sir Arnold Hall, Pierre Satre, Dr. A.E. Russell, Dr. S.G. Hooker, Dr. J.M. Lighthill.
Commentary spoken by Michael Flanders.
