Yesterday I spent the day with Wing Commander John Freeborn at North Weald as he was interviewed and filmed for the BBC's 'The One Show' being broadcast on Wednesday 2nd September 2009 at 7pm on BBC1. John was interviewed by journalist and presenter Lucy Siegle about his early days as a Spitfire pilot in the RAF during WWII. After a wonderful day there was a fantastic Spitfire display in tribute to John, which he thoroughly enjoyed.

My book 'Tiger Cub' - The Story of John Freeborn's time with 74 Squadron during the early stages of the war and the Battle of Britain was used for research by the BBC's team.
Tiger Cub is available HERE and HERE but can be ordered at any book shop or outlet.
