One of Our Aircraft is Missing (Blu-ray)
Directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger

Shot down over occupied Holland, the crew of a Wellington bomber must navigate their way to safety through enemy territory, in this Second World War classic. Written, produced and directed by Michael Powell and Emeric Pressburger (The Red Shoes, A Matter of Life and Death), One of Our Aircraft is Missing is an intense and suspenseful tale of wartime valour and heroism.

An early success for the directing duo, this Academy Award-nominated drama stars a medley of British acting icons, including Eric Portman, Bernard Miles and Googie Withers, appearing in one of her first major film roles

A true landmark of 1940s British cinema that helped cement Powell and Pressburger's burgeoning reputations (as well as that of the film's editor David Lean), One of the Our Aircraft is Missing arrives on Blu-ray for the first time in the UK.
