British Airways kicks off its 100th birthday celebrations with a star-studded campaign that explores 'modern Britishness' and national pride.

At the heart of the push is a big budget TV ad, 'Made by Britain'. It features a cast of homegrown talent including Olivia Colman, Anthony Joshua, Garry Oldman, Nicola Adams and Grayson Perry. The stars are shown boarding a plane dubbed BA100 as cabin crew, pilots and engineers carrying out the final touches in preparation for take off.

The celebrity line up, chosen to reflect all corners of Britian, are shown reading out a specially-written 'love letter' to Britain recounting the values and characteristics they feel make the isles a special place.
