I watched it and thought it was great. The first thought s I had when I heard him speak were "aah, no wonder he wrote all those books - 'e's a cockney sparra, and no mistake, and likes to talk a lot" or something.

Soon dispelled - did a fantastic job on the program, and bigged the PWRR up VERY nicely - and so he should. Those lads are the dog's nuts, especially Dan Mills!

Top program, and can't wait for the next installation - next week folks.

Course he's a cockney sparra...from an estate in Peckham.
Think he's ex RGJ (?) prior to SAS.

Yeah he did used to be RGJ before the SAS, although he wanted to be a chopper pilot.

On the whole a good programme, quite enjoyable.
BUT!
Those reconstructions! Walts all with different gear and airsoft rifles and poor acting :D
However, as a programme obviously done on the cheap, pretty good.

Yep.

I found the reconstructions irritating, the credits implied it was Cambridge OTC doing it.

Hats off to the PWRR, though, and good to see the CIMIC House action getting a wider audience.

Timed just nicely after SAS Down Under.

Now THAT looks hard...

OTC you say?
Well I would have thought even OTC people would have known that there was a big difference in the way a PRR looks, and a PC bluetooth headset :D

Actually during Telic 4 al ot of people converted Bluetooth phone ear pieces to work with PRR
You could buy them in the Shat Al Arab and the siggy blokes would wire them up for a couple of quid
It seemed the thing to have especially amongst the Cheshires at the time

Anyone know where I can watch the second episode? I missed it and ITV4's I iPlayer doesn't work. I e-mailed them asking them to fix it and they replied with this.

I missed part one - tried the link when I clicked on part one it disappeared. E mailed them to complain.

Looks like it's not a real catch up - more a case some work and some don't. Looked for it on youtube but could only find the American Vietnam series.

So it's not catch up then is it ?

More like some things work and others don't site
