    Looks very good
    ITV are also plugging it on their breakfast show apparently.

    There's a very good show on the I Player about EOD in Ireland in 1974
    That's all well worth a watch.

  7. Very very brave lads after what i've just seen so far.
  8. Cracking Programme. Bigger men than me. Pure Nails.
  9. that poor lad, ****ing brave,
  10. At the end of the programme, we have been here three month, there was 7 of us and now there are three, we have three month to go. A very brave young man.
  11. Ditto.

    Just watched it very good, very brave men (and dog).
  12. I'm sure it's a cretinous point to make, but most of the locations that they were working in seemed not to be worth the risk of legs or life. I remember that Met copper who was killed defusing an IRA bomb in a Wimpey Bar. They should have left the bomb to blow up the burgers rather than a copper, imho.

    I know they have to ID where the devices are, but why not then drop a GBU-28 or similar on the pos and save these poor young buggers the effort of poking around on their belt buckles to get forensic intel that will only go to prove that the ****ing Iranians are supplying most of the IED kit.

  14. I believe in certain magazines they put PLOT SPOILER up before they spoil the plot.
