No German planes?

BBC2 has just shown a new documentary, which claims there was no actual air-raid. The new anti-aircraft missiles, the "Z Batteries" were simply being tested in Victoria Park, but the Government didn't warn the general public. No-one heard any planes, and the Z Batteries were the only things fired, no bombs fell. The official inquiry into the incident suggested (obliquely) that the panic and subsequent deaths were a direct result of the trial runs of the Z Batteries.
