was that I did this extraordinary genealogy program
called Who Do You Think You Are?
Which was, it was truly revelatory for my family.
And in speaking to all the historians that I did,
and all these extraordinary librarians
and people who had so much more knowledge
about this than I did,
that you have to understand
that they had no idea, really, what was coming
and how to handle it.
And those first bombing raids, they were lumbering,
and they didn't hold formation in the way
that they'd been told to
because the practicality of it,
when you're up in the air was impossible.
They didn't have self-sealing fuel tanks.
Like, so much changed after those,
but they did, they left a legacy
of this feeling of they weren't as beloved
as the Spitfires and the Hurricanes,
and certainly, the Typhoons.
They weren't as magically terrifying as the Luftwaffe.
So, I think that's certainly what I found out.
