About this programme

5/26. A British airborne operation to capture the secrets of a sophisticated German radar system. In February 1942, paratroopers were dropped into Bruneval on the French coast, where they quickly neutralised a small German garrison. With opposing units converging on their position, they set about dismantling the system before being intercepted, intending to return to Britain with valuable components to study.
