Defenders of the Sky follows military history enthusiast, Jules Hudson, as he criss-crosses the UK to discover the hidden stories of airfields throughout Britain. On this experiential journey, Jules gets hands on with history interviewing experts who guide him through pivotal moments of each airfield. Gripping wartime stories from WWI, WWII and the Falklands, spectacular aviation inventions and daring comradeship drive the narrative of every programme resulting in a compelling account of the importance of these airfields in the UK and world history.  


Jules heads to Duxford in Cambridgeshire, the home of Douglas Bader's Big Wing during the Battle of Britain and an aerodrome that welcomed thousands of soldiers in the Second World War.


Join Jules in Farnborough, the birthplace of British aviation. No other single location in the world has contributed quite as much to the evolution of aeronautical science over such a long period of time. From the UK's first flight to the jet engine and the extraordinary effort spent on preserving British aviation heritage.
