    Hi there.
    First time poster so hello to all out there.
    I'm interested in finding the name of a movie i have seen a couple of times.

    Here are some things that i remember about the movie.

    I think it had 4 (men) main characters called up by the government from universities over the counrty
    It s black and white and showed the development of radar (main theme).
    In one scene one of them goes on a commando raid in France to try to capture a radar site.
    Also they fly in a bomber and get radar returns off a town while flying.
    Also they did night fighters using the radar returns to find other planes They also stay a a seaside resort while working with their wives / partners with a housekeeper who's son is in the bomber that works with the sciencists but can't tell his mum.
    (More info just added)
    I beleive sone of the chararcters is based on one following people
    Mr. A.D.Blumlein, Civilian E.M.I.
    Mr. C.O.Browne, Civilian E.M.I.
    Mr. F.Blythen, Civilian E.M.I.
    Comes from this site http://www.doramusic.com/crashsite.htm as this site matches in what i remember about the film

    Hope this helps someone remember the name of the movie.


    Thanks for any help.
