Followed directly by McNab's Tour of Duty, and no that is not what you are thinking of:
In this episode, the amazing story of the Princess of Wales Royal Regiment who spent four months under constant barrage of mortars, machine guns and small arms in Al Amarah, south of Baghdad. The soldiers themselves tell how they lived under the strain. Plus the US marine sniper who came under siege, not only from the enemy forces but also from his fellow marines while perched on top of an oil tank in Iraq.
Surprised, given the title, that this thread isn't busier. Start a new one (I nearly did, but I see that new software highlights existing threads with similar names) and risk the wrath of J, or narcopost on an old thread? Here I am.
Browsing What's on TV for next week, I found the following and felt they all need a heads-up.
Wednesday 11 November on ITV Encore @ 2200: The Frankenstein Chronicles. Early 19C ex-soldier Sean Bean (no irony there) turned detective investigates a "child's" corpse ...
Thursday 12 November on ITV 4 @ 2315:The Wicker Man (the 1973 original, hopefully with the full frontal Britt Ekland dance scene not edited out, unlike the last time I saw it).
Saturday 14 November on BBC 2 @ 0045 (Friday night!): Cross of Iron. Nothing else to say. Move along.
DISCLAIMER. I found all these, put them in my calendar to remind me because they weren't available on the Sky+ planner yet, I seem originally to have got at least one completely wrong for date, then Zero Alpha stole the comic and she is completely incapable of following my requests to verify my data while refusing to hand the comic back and huffing because she is trying to read it. I therefore offer no guarantee or warranty, explicit or implied, that any of the information is correct.
