Fighting On Film: A Bridge Too Far (1977) Ft. Al Murray

This week we tackle a true classic, Richard Attenborough’s ‘A Bridge Too Far‘, with some help from renowned comedian and history buff Al Murray. Al joined us to talk about one of his (and our) favourite war films. With a truly stellar cast the film takes on the epic story of Operation Market Garden. Join us as we leap from a Dakota and push on to the bridge!

The episode is also available on all other podcast platforms, you can find them here.

Here’s some stills from the film:
