What’s it like to be in the SAS? What do SAS soldiers do? And how do they feel and what do they think when they’re doing it?
Based on strikingly candid interviews with former SAS soldiers, this landmark documentary series reveals for the first time the human experience of serving in the world’s most famous elite military unit.
The films feature the inside stories of some of the biggest SAS operations in recent history from the Falklands to Iraq, and Sierra Leone to Northern Ireland. They are told in intimate, thrilling – and, above all, human – detail by the soldiers themselves, and illustrated with highly realistic and atmospheric drama sequences. And they transport the viewer instantly to the heat of the action, be it a massive firefight behind enemy lines, a daring hostage rescue, a brutal interrogation – or a shopping trip to Tesco’s when the battle’s over but the adrenaline is still pumping.
Gripping, shocking and often funny, these films offer a strikingly frank and intimate portrait of the lives of ordinary men who do an extraordinary job.
