Feckin awesome program, unfortunately I can't get UKTV Drama!! Good job I have it on DVD, had to get it from Holland through, why is a BBC made film not on sale here, even from the BBC?

Never seen the dramatisation, but was lucky enough to work with Maj M*** B**** QGM, who one of the characters is based up on.

A true hero, leader of men, life-long friend and jolly nice chap.

warriors was most certainly available in the uk on dvd and elsewhere in europe. whether it is still available is doubtful. amazon.co.uk doesn't list it. its US title is Peacemakers (well it was either that or "Bradley" I guess) and amazon.com ain't listing it either.

I assume that the Army must have had quite an imput in this
Did anyone on this site drive a warrior for the TV company
Soldier soldier used to use serving personnel as extras L/R drivers etc did the BBC do the same?
It states that the only filming location was Prague
Did they not use Germany or the UK for the warrior scenes?
IIRC it was based on the Cheshire regiments tour is that correct?

Exellant dramt btw thought it gave a good view of the forces

It was all filmed in the Czech Republic, one of the advisors, Tudor Ellis, was a Captain with the Cheshires Battle Group. It may have been RGJ who provided the vehicles and drivers. Somewhere I have an article on the making of it. If you look hard enough you will see one of the Warriors is the name Juliet painted on it. This was the name of Lt Col Stewarts Warrior during the tour.
