Guy Martin's Spitfire.

Guy Martin's Spitfire, Tonight, 7.30pm, Channel 4

Motorcycle racer Guy Martin gets himself involved in the restoration of a Mk I Spitfire, flown by Squadron Leader Geoffrey Stephenson over the beaches of Dunkirk in May 1940. Stephenson survived but ended up in Colditz, later becoming the Queen's pilot. The Spitfire sank beneath the sand of a French beach until it was exhumed in the 1980s. Now, amazingly, it's flying again.
