The most stunning dramatised documentary I've ever seen
30 June 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Jeremy Clarkson's account of this raid had me gripped in total awe that these softly spoken, old gentleman had been Commandos prepared to sacrifice their lives for Great Britain. Knowing that they were very unlikely to survive they kept on with the task set, despite overwhelming odds. I was in tears for most of the programme. When the programme ended we turned over and there was Jordan (the model) and her boyfriend being filmed because they are "celebrities" (has the World/UK lost its mind?).

Turning over again the Euro 2008 football final was on, a Spanish player brushed his head against the chin of a German player, who immediately acted as though he was injured. A few minutes before I had heard of a British Navy Captain who had been shot 16 times and was still attacking a much more powerful German vessel. Why do we venerate celebrities and football players? They are nothing compared to the Commandos that carried out this attack. out this attack.
