The Mystery of the Missing Ace

In huge conflicts such as the Second World War, individual acts of courage or heroism can frequently be overlooked. Though much decorated during his lifetime, Wing Commander Adrian Warburton was largely written off by the authorities after his mysterious disappearance during a mission. Warburton was a glamorous figure, an RAF pilot and crack reconnaissance photographer.

He won the Distinguished Flying Cross for bravery, and led a dashing life in Malta, where he fell in love with a dancer. But she - and his wife in England -- was bereft when he vanished. For decades, neither the US nor the British authorities took much interest in his fate. But this Timewatch (first shown last year) tells the remarkable story of some dogged amateur historians and other experts who unravelled the truth that led, at long last, to Warburton being laid to rest.
