Soldiers' Stories: Northern Ireland

At 9 p.m. on Sunday the HISTORY Channel is showing Soldiers' Stories. This documentary tells the story of The Troubles from the perspective of the British soldiers who served there. Stretching from 1969 to 2007, this was the longest continuous deployment in the history of the British Army.

According to the press release I have been sent:

This documentary for HISTORY, presented by former soldier Ken Hames and based on the in-depth interviews conducted by Northern Ireland veteran Ken Wharton for his books on The Troubles, provides a new and unique insight into the conflict in Northern Ireland.

Soldiers have never before given such personal interviews and reveal stories of bombings, humour in the face of adversity, of strong comradeship and of heartache, from their own personal perspective.

Don't worry if you can't get the channel or miss the programme: next week I shall be running another of my quizzes and this time the prizes will be copies of the Soldiers' Stories DVD.
