Narrated by Group Captain Douglas Bader London's airport at Heathrow is nearly 25 years old. People working there remember the early days and the incredulity which greeted the announcement that the daily arrival of aircraft might, in the near future, double from ten to 20.
Today, Heathrow is a miniature United Nations with 60 countries operating from the air terminal and hundreds of planes constantly landing and taking off. Third largest port in the United Kingdom in terms of value of cargo, it is a hub of constant drama, excitement, and movement.
