Michael Redgrave: Air Vice Marshal Evill
Air Vice Marshal Evill : [ACM Dowding is sitting at his desk reading reports. The phone buzzes. AVM Evill picks up the phone] Yes?
Air Vice Marshal Evill : Yes, one moment
[turns to ACM Dowding]
Air Vice Marshal Evill : The Air Minister, sir. on the scrambler.
Air Chief Marshall Sir Hugh Dowding : [picks up green scrambler phone] Yes?
Minister : Ah, Dowding. Er. Look. Our people in Washington are having trouble with the American Press. It's about today's figures. German sources there are saying that our claims are wildly exaggerated.
Air Chief Marshall Sir Hugh Dowding : [listens, but says nothing]
Minister : Hello? Are you there Dowding?
Air Chief Marshall Sir Hugh Dowding : I'm here Minister.
Minister : Well I mean, can you verify the figures?
Air Chief Marshall Sir Hugh Dowding : [clears throat] I'm not very interested in propaganda. If we're right, they'll give up. If we are wrong, they'll be in London in a week!.
[pauses then hangs up]
