I saw this on tv about 4 years ago and finally appeared on dvd. Now called 'Beaufighter Squadron World War 2' and was previously 'Beaufighter : Forgotten Warhorse'.
Made in 1997 it has lots of gun cam footage, archive newsreel and interviews with veterans telling their story. Its been put out under the SBS (Australian tv) label.

I hope I can find a copy of that. Sounds like it will be right up my alley.

In the meantime, here is an link that I hope a Beau man will find of interest.

It has to be said though, there's not quite so much Beaufighter footage as I'd hope. Lots of stirring stuff, only some of it Beau-related.
