I didn't see anything new in it..
I agree. I'm not quite sure what the premise of the programme was - it seemed to be a series of separate and largely unrelated personal experiences of the conflict cobbled together to try and fit a narrative of 'how we nearly lost the war'. These individual testimonies were interesting enough on their own, and quite poignant in the case of the chap from the Welsh Guards remembering his old rugby team mates, but struggled at times to make the connections (how did the Para private on Mount Longdon relate to the RAF Wing Commander in Chile, for example). Also, they had a couple of Argentine veterans on camera and gave them about 30 seconds of air time to say not very much.I suspect there will be many more of these documentaries over the coming weeks, looking to put a fresh spin on what really is an already well known story.
