BBC drama - My Mother and Other Strangers - flight jacket wardrobe

Mon 31st, October 2016.

On Sunday evening, 13th November, the BBC is airing the first episode of a new period wartime drama based around the arrival of USAAF bomber crews in N. Ireland, called My Mother and Other Strangers.

We were approached earlier this year by them to supply an authentic flight jacket wardrobe for the production. Leading the cast is Aaron Staton (Mad Men) playing Capt. Dreyfuss, along with Owen McDonnell (Single-Handed) playing Michael.

We will have the entire flight jacket wardrobe on show at the pop up shop in London in November, where the garments will be available to purchase, complete with certificates of authenticity.

Set in Northern Ireland during World War Two, My Mother and Other Strangers follows the fortunes of the Coyne family and their neighbours as they struggle to maintain a normal life after a huge United States Army Air Force (USAAF) airfield is set up in the middle of their rural parish in 1943.

The series is in 5 weekly 1 hour parts, starting Sunday 13th November.
