  1. Hello all,

    October Films in partnership with Channel 4 are producing a television series which will celebrate the best internet clips around.

    One of the clips that we are very interested in including features members of the British Arned Forces. A boat full of troops land on a beach and to their surprise are sucked in by a shore full of quicksand. www.youtube.com/watch?v=MZurPX0olqE

    This has been one of the most popular clips online since it first emerged some 18 months or so ago. We are desperate to speak to some of the people that were a part of this video.

    We have spoken to the Royal Navy press office who confirmed that it was in fact British troops as many links online say French, US and other countries Marines. They have said that the video was not put together by the Royal Navy but the troops involved and although they have tried to track them down, thier efforts have been unsuccessful. They agreed that it is a hilarious piece of footage.

    We have been pointed to this clip taking place in the Al Faw peninsula, Iraq, and the Royal Engineers or possibly the Royal Anglians being the creators of this clip.

    We would like to hear from anyone that was involved in the making of this video or knows of anyone that was involved in its creation, particularly the owner, to take part in this television project.

    If you have any information, please contact via 020 7284 6868 or victor.chimara@octoberfilms.co.uk

    Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.
  2. Pretty sure it was some lads from 40Regt RA. Could be wrong though.

    Be aware that the MoD in its wisdom has banned any serving soldier from having any unauthorised contact with the media (in all its forms, including this forum!), so you might want to approach the Regiment through official channels.
