Well I certainly went off at a tangent there ... and now suitably corrected .... I got focussed on just the resources required to complete the task in the time available ... doubtless participants in the recreation will be expecting financial reward from the programme either before or after its initial showing ... did Barnes Wallis charge for his time ? I do know that he received a payment of several thousand pounds after the the war for his work ... I believe he used it to set up some form of Charity for RAF Personnel ... how times have changed .
