Synopsis: Set in the mid-1930s, this film charts the work of Robert Watson Watt and his hand-picked team of meteorologists as they struggle to turn the concept of Radar into a workable reality. Hamstrung by a tiny budget, seemingly insurmountable technical problems and even a spy in the camp, Watson Watt also has to deal with marital problems as he chases his dream. They develop the world's first Radar system along the south east coast of England that, in 1940, proved pivotal in winning the Battle of Britain.
