Battle of Britain on the BBC archives website

A fabulous resource of film and sound archives culled from 70 years of BBC coverage relating to the Battle of Britain. The archives range from Charles Gardner's contemporary radio broadcast of an air battle off Dover - in which the excited BBC reporter sounds like he's reporting on a test match - to the 1970s documentary, Spitfire: 40 years on, narrated by Raymond Baxter and featuring Douglas Bader and other men and women who built, flew and serviced Spitfires. An essential port of call during the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain.
