The prototype for the Blenheim was designed and built for Viscount Rothermere, owner of the Daily Mail. It was ordered so that his journalists and photographers could fly anywhere in Europe, where news was breaking, and be back in time in London to have the story and pictures in his newspaper the next day. When this aircraft, which Rothermere called 'Britain First' was tested, it proved to have a top speed of over 300mph - 50 mph faster than any of the British fighters then in the first line. The outcome was the RAF immediately asked to test 'Britain First' and Lord Rothermere had no hesitation in presenting the aircraft to the nation. This complete boxset tells the fascinating story.
