    To be fair a number of us on the forum would be moaning on if they did not produce WW2 progs for our critique.
    So quite happy they keep producing even if they cover the box ticks for the 21st century.

    Exactly right. We need something to harumph about.

    I'm going back to 'The World at War' in the mean time. :)

    Watched it for first time tonight. As a drama I frankly found it predictable in the various plot lines. Will give it the benefit of the doubt re next episode. Reasonably well made albeit clearly on a limited budget. If this is a way of introducing the younger generation to WW2 it is a confusing mess.

    I like him, after expecting not to.
    See the one on Crete? Lugers & old hatreds.

    He's refreshingly honest that things can be very very complicated and succeeds in not descending into the mawkishness some of these travelogue journos do.
    Began under Andrew Neil, so maybe learnt to have a harder head there.

    It was another box ticking exercise again last night and according to the BBC, Dunkirk was an event in winter, or so it looked to me. So why oh why do I keep watching???

    To ensure it's as bad as you think it is and/or in case it gets better and/or you might miss something that is important......or not as the case may be.

    I haven't seen any of it yet. Is it in the same league as Pearl Harbor or Windtalkers?

    I think I saw some Welsh Dressers but I think they might be different
