Over Here (BBC-1 1996, Samuel West, Martin Clunes)

Set in the Second World War, Over Here tells the story of a fighter squadron of young RAF Spitfire pilots who are joined by a squadron of raw USAAF B17 personnel. Inevitably, tensions arise and the comedy of the situation is set against the powerful reality of the war.

Samuel West is Archie Bunting, a 23-year old British fighter pilot, and his father, Timothy West, plays Archie in later life. American actor Jay Goede, who was cast after a lengthy search in the UK and USA, makes his British television debut as Lenko and Todd Boyce plays his commanding officer, Colonel Jack Hewitt. Welsh actress Sharon Geater plays Bronwen, a 20-year-old WAAF, who is Archie’s girlfriend until the arrival of the American troops, when the competition for her affections creates tension and jealousy between Archie and Lenko.

The distinguished cast also features Geraldine James as Lady Beatrice Billingham and Jack Shepherd as her butler, Butler. Real B17s and Spitfires also have a starring role, as the courageous pilots set off on their daring combat missions.

Filmed on location in Norfolk by producer Jacinta Peel and director Tony Dow, Over Here is written by John Sullivan, based on an idea by Ernest Maxin.
