interesting period piece,1980s music and cold war danger.
15 September 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed this BBC play when it was first shown,I still have a tape somewhere of when it was repeated. Without giving the plot away it involves a shy nerdy young RAF man,played by Reece Dinsdale,he meets an attractive young barmaid played by Nicola Cowper. They are somehow attracted to each other,can they ever have a relationship? There story is played out against the background of a big military exercise. There is alcohol abuse,violence,sex and birdwatching. People who have been in the RAF tell me it is very realistic picture of the RAF in the 1980s. I was impressed by this when I saw it,Nicola Cowper is the star here but I am surprised that she has never progressed much in her career. She was a regular in Dangerfield but has not had many TV parts since then. If you ever get the chance to see this,watch it,I don't suppose it will be on again unless UKTV DRAMA channel show it,but they show stuff like TERRY AND JUNE,how is that Drama?
