Churchill's Battle of Britain 'Few' remembered

On 20 August 1940, Winston Churchill gave what was possibly the most stirring of his speeches, praising "the Few" - the airmen who took part in the Battle of Britain.

Events to mark the 70th anniversary of the battle have been taking place, culminating in a reading of the speech and a flypast over the War Rooms.

Robert Hall reports.
