In May 1943, a squadron of British Lancaster bombers (carrying specially designed bouncing mines) managed to breach several dams in Germany, damaging the industrial war-power of Hitler's "Third Reich" and providing a huge boost in morale for the Allied forces. In 1955, a film was made about the raid and the long preparations which preceded it, and it was rather good: Michael Anderson's The Dam Busters is a beloved classic. As our James Dennis said in his review of an earlier release of the film: "Now, in an age of heightened cynicism and knowing winks, there's a joy in watching such a simple yet uplifting tale of integrity and determination."

To celebrate the 75th anniversary of the raids, CanalPlus has given The Dam Busters a pimped release, using new 4K restored transfers for the discs. It's quite the looker, so here are some pictures of the set! Click on the edge of the pictures to scroll through them, or at the center of each to see a bigger version.

And here it is, a big slipcase.
