    Taping for watching later. Looks good.
     
  5. I've already posted this in Films and TV
     
  6. As an ex 3rd Tankie found it very illuminating and informative.Had I watched it before I Joined up, I don't think I would have been an Ex 3rd Tankie.
     
  7. Very impressed with it and very glad I was an Infanteer not in 5 RTR. But all credit to them.
     
  8. Watched some of it, set top box is on the fritz. What a lot of new colour film they've found! There was a fair amount of dramtic reconstruction, but where has all the archive stuff suddenly come from?

    Looks to be as balanced a programme as one can get when looking at the two side's AFV capability. Excluding the Russians of course, T34/85 anyone?

  10. It was okay. Hopefully it will stimulate interest where none currently exists.
