Battle of Britain museum opens

A stately home which was the heart of fighter command during the Battle of Britain opens as a museum on Thursday.

Bentley Priory, in north west London, was home of the female fighter controllers, known affectionately as the Beauty Chorus.

They were wartime members of the Women's Auxiliary Air Force, and played a crucial role identifying, and intercepting Luftwaffe bombers.

Robert Hall reports.
