A BBC Radio 2 News reporter…

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

When reporting about extracts, from the famous "So much owed by so many to so few" speech being read today by actor Robert Hardy, outside the Churchill War Rooms. The reading is exactly 70 years to the minute Churchill made the original address to Parliament in 1940...

Unfortunately the reporter got it wrong…

“Never in the field of human combat was so much owed by so many to so few”

If you want to listen to it go here, comes in at 1.00.25

Here’s the report about the 70th anniversary of the Battle of Britain has been marked by a reading of one of Sir Winston Churchill's most famous speeches and a fly-past.
