The highly acclaimed BBC Radio 4 production starring Tom Baker, Jack Shepherd, Frank Windsor and Samuel West. It is 18 February 1943, and RAF Lancaster bomber WF 183 - call sign O-Orange - is about to set off on its final mission.
It is a raid which will touch the lives of hundreds: the civilians in the small German town of Altgarten, consumed by blazing fire, and the crews, both German and British, men and women. It is a night of horror that few will forget When the gripping dramatised version of Bomber was first broadcast on BBC Radio 4, it was transmitted in `real time' throughout the day, to incredible critical and audience response. Tom Baker is the Commentator, and an all-star cast includes Jack Shepherd, Frank Windsor, Samuel West, Emma Chambers, Brian Murphy and Michael Troughton. Bomber is a thrilling, action-packed and ultimately poignant story that will stay in the listener's imagination for a long time to come.
