Join us as we meet some people, visit the places and experience the moment that made history on October 4, 1938. Soviet pilot Marina Raskova beats a world record: the longest continuous flight ever recorded by a woman. She’ll soon break another barrier– she’ll lead the first-ever female air force pilots to fly on the front lines of World War Two. One of her regiments in particular will wreak havoc on Nazi German soldiers and become the most notorious night bombers in the entire Soviet Union. Today: The Night Witches. Who were these barrier-breaking pilots? And how did they become some of the most feared forces on the Eastern front?
