radar girls?

Google is being no help at all, so I'll entrust this to you.

I need help identifying something I saw on a TV documentary about World War II. The doc was talking about radar and the Royal Air Force, and showed footage of a bunch of young women in a large room pushing around model planes and boats with long sticks in response to radar information. They essentially created a real-time map of the air battle over Europe.

So my question is - what is the actual title of these women, and how can I get more information about them?

Thanks in advance...
