BBC doc Featured on PRI’s “The World”

More love for Lucy Ash’s BBC radio documentary on the Soviet combat airwomen of WWII, including a gorgeous newsreel montage of the women and their airplanes: visit this site to watch the video and hear the PRI story about the “Night Witches.”

Here’s a similar You Tube montage of the airwomen which I love, with music from the Russian film, “Night Witches”:

Lyrics by poet Yevgeny Yevtuskenko:

“We are not voiceless shadows.
We are wind.
We are the calls of cranes.
We are they who have died in the skies for the Motherland.
We have become the skies.”
