What will the modern take be? By all accounts the 1955 version was historically accurate. So what is there to add? Dripping emotion and special effects no doubt, bigger explosions and lots of computer generated imagery - most likely at the expense of characterisation and the strategic drama. Bouncing bombs will be complemented by bouncing breasts. Men will be shown weeping and using hair gel. What is the point?

Of one thing FB is sure, no remake will ever better Eric Coates' stirring theme tune of the Dam Busters. Coates actually declined to score the film but wrote the celebrated March of the Dam Busters which Leighton Lucan based his score on. Test Match Quality.
