Concorde: A Supersonic Story

Documentary exploring the life of the most glamorous plane ever built - including the story of the forgotten row between the French and British governments over its name.

The life of the most glamorous plane ever built - told by the people whose lives she touched. We uncover rare footage telling the forgotten row between the French and British governments over the name of Concorde which threatened to derail the whole project. Ahead of the opening of Bristol's multimillion-pound aerospace museum, a host of engineers, flight technicians and frequent fliers tell the supersonic story, aided by Lord Heseltine and Dame Joan Collins. And we meet the passenger who shared an intimate moment with The Rolling Stones. Narrated by Sophie Okonedo.
