CLASSIC film The Dam Busters will be screened in Bradford tomorrow in line with 75th anniversary commemorations of the legendary wartime raid.

A gala event at the Royal Albert Hall will be screened in cinemas nationwide - including Cineworld and Picturehouse at the National Media Museum. TV historian Dan Snow will host the commemorations, paying tribute to Wing Commander Guy Gibson and the 617 Squadron. Featuring special guests, an on-stage ‘bouncing bomb’ experiment and music from the Glenn Miller Orchestra, the gala will be broadcast from 7.15pm - 8.15pm, culminating in a screening of The Dam Busters in 4K definition. The 1955 film captures the action of a group of young pilots charged with taking out Germany’s supposedly impenetrable Ruhr river dams. Starring Richard Todd as Gibson and Michael Redgrave as scientist and engineer Dr Barnes Wallis, the film immortalised composer’s Eric Coates’s score, The Dam Busters March. For tickets visit
