"During the human struggles between the British and German air forces... another conflict was going on step by step, month by month. This was a secret war whose battles were lost or won unknown to the public: and only with difficulty is it comprehended even now by those outside the smalt high scientific circles concerned." Winston Churchill (Their Finest Hour)
From 1939 to 1945 Allied and Axis scientists threw their weight into the war as scientists had never done in any previous conflict. They knew that their influence would have enormous consequences for mankind. The secret battles for air supremacy, the inventions, the measures and the countermeasures are part of a story which scientists tell in tonight's programme.
