The best ever documentary??
16 March 2007 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When i saw Jeremy Clarkson was presenting this i was really worried he'd make a bit of a pigs ear of it, (and i'm a fan of top gear) taking into account his TV persona. But i'm glad to report he was excellent, didn't sensationalise the deeds covered, or the persons, The stories were captivating, and there is a big twist at the end, but to give it away would be wrong of me. I am just annoyed it was never released on DVD as this is something i would have liked my children to watch when they are old enough and understand the meaning of sacrifice and heroes! This programme accurately shows the heroism shown by British and commonwealth forces, and makes you very proud to be British!
