DVD Talk review of 'Battle of Britain'

I read DVD Savant's DVD review of Battle of Britain at http://www.dvdtalk.com/reviews/read.php?ID=6383 and...i agree with a lot of what was written but i must disagree on a few points.
1. On the attack on London, it really did happen that way. Strange, yes but it happen (see various battle books).
2. Dowding did not have that kind of stratagy.
11th Group was caught flat-footed when the germans 1st switched from airfields to london. Moreover, 11th Group did not all that much time to intercept and kept harashing the german air fleets going to and returning from.
3. 12th Group 'big wings' had trouble forming up in time and mostly hit the germans after they bombed. Dowding was most unhappy about that.
4. The dvd has a different ending score and stat figures than the vhs version. Unfortunatly, not for the better.
