I’m Freddie, Fly Me!
The destruction of Freddie Laker is a powerful, dramatic and important story. It’s about the ruthlessness of big business; the silky savagery of the law; the pragmatism of governments and the treachery of the British class system.
“This documentary is full of personal and public drama, corporate intrigue, epic legal battles and political manipulation. But this isn’t a story about one man’s rise and fall or a biopic about how a larger than life character who bit off more than he could chew. What makes the story of his destruction compelling and relevant is that the combined forces of big business which brought him down are still in place today and still directly affecting how we live our lives.”
