Silver Screen tribute to Australians on and Behind the screen: The Dam Busters

1955, 123 mins

Digital restoration of a classic film with soundtrack

The Dam Busters is the story of the 1943 raid and the squadron that breached the giant Moehne and Eder Dams with colossal 'blockbuster' bombs. It tells how they took out the V3 rocket weapon and destroyed the Tirpitz in a Norwegian fjord. Again and again, the crews of 617 Squadron Bomber Command used their flying skills, their tremendous courage and Barnes Wallis' highly accurate bombs to deal devastating blows to Nazi Germany. This story is one of the classics of the Second World War, a massive bestseller that became a film
