A heads up about the above programme. I do hope this is done well, and sensitively. DOCUMENTARY: Dispatches On: Channel 4 (104) Date: Monday 7th September 2009 (starting in 5 days) Time: 20:00 to 21:00 (1 hour long) Battle Scarred. As the number of British soldiers returning from Afghanistan in coffins exceeds 200, award-winning filmmaker David Modell examines the devastating trauma suffered by so many surviving soldiers that leaves no visible scars but great psychological injury. Dispatches documents the lives of four soldiers who have been left with serious psychiatric problems as a result of their experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. To many here, the conflicts may seem remote, but this film provides an intimate portrait of their devastating impact on the lives of individual soldiers and their families. Examining the consequences of long and repeated tours of duty, the film raises serious questions about the adequacy of existing support structures to help returning soldiers cope with any trauma they may be suffering.
