  1. The Promise - Might be worth a watch.

    One of Britain's most acclaimed directors of hard-hitting television drama tells the story of one of Britain's lesser know military operations through the eyes of a British soldier.

    Claire Foy and Christian Cooke lead an international cast, in Peter Kosminsky's new four-part drama serial coming to C4 @ 9pm a week on Sunday.

    Just as 18-year-old Londoner Erin (Foy) sets off to spend summer in Israel with her best friend, Eliza (Weeks), she unearths an old diary belonging to her seriously ill grandfather.

    Intrigued by the life of this old man she barely knows, she takes the diary with her, and is stunned to learn of his part in the post-WWII British peace-keeping force in what was Palestine.

    Len's story comes to life from the pages of the diary, as Erin discovers the disturbing truths about his time in Palestine and the atrocities he witnessed in the 1940s.
