A nail-biting fight against the clock to save Great Britain.

Multi-award-winning director Gillies Mackinnon brings his expertise and skill to the fascinating story of visionary Scottish engineer and developer of radar, Robert Watson-Watt (Eddie Izzard). Credited as the invention that won the Battle of Britain, radar was a vague and underdeveloped concept before Watson-Watt was charged with proving its usefulness to a coastal nation at war. Ably supported by a strong cast, Izzard deftly evokes the spirit of the great man who was part mad scientist, part dreamer, and part pragmatist.
