Behind the Lines - 80s TV Doco

Hi all

I'm trying to get a copy of an 80s UK TV documentary "Behind The Lines", about the Royal Marine's Mountain and Arctic Warfare Cadre (as it was then).

It's for a friend who was a Mountain Leader in the cadre.

Hopefully someone will have a copy or know who the producers were so we can contact them directly!?

Any help and/or advice will be gratefully received!
Hi, Did you ever manage to locate of a copy of this series? I believe there was also a recap 10 years on, once all the candidates had been out in the field. I have a copy on VHS, which will soon find its way onto a DVD. Not too sure what the quality will be like but it's better than nothing :)

It was on Youtube in about 10 parts once upon a time
Have you looked on there?
Hi, I am interested in the original series of "Behind the Lines" from 1984. It came out a year after I left. I remember it being on the front of Radio Times magazine "Ice Warriors". If you have a spare copy I am willing to pay.
Have just watched an hour long documentary on the ML course from 2001, same format, tashes and personalities as the 80's docu.. If the 2001 lot had watched the original they would have known what to expect and not made the same mistakes, apart from helicopters and SA80's, it was the same course content..

(SKY) Discovery History Channel, it does not appear to be repeated, but it might be found on SKY Go..
