ABOVE ENEMY LINES

The men of the RAF's 27 Squadron are in Afghanistan for a tour of duty. For two months, they will be flying missions around the notorious frontline of Helmand Province, where British troops are engaged daily in ferocious battles with a resurgent Taliban. In this intimate film featuring cockpit footage, we follow the pilots and crewmen for the duration of their tour, as they deliver troops, food and ammunition, and rescue injured British troops while under enemy fire.

The call is ringing loud 'n clear tonight, to their nations heart they'll be known.

Cracking documentary, but why was it on so late? The great British public really ought to know this stuff is going on, whether they like it or not.

You're right don - of course. I expect it'll pull closer to the watershed margin on the 11th of the 11th of the 11th. If it doesn't tend that way by nature... i'll be puting more than my oar in up Aunty.
