    Supposed to be broadcast tomorrow but it's up in HD on Anytime right now. First good thing I've seen on that wasted 140GB partition.

    You've got to hand it to Sky One. All their new programmes are in HD and DD 5.1

    It's puts the BBC to shame, where apart from Torchwood which had 5.1 - but alas poor PQ, it seems that all their dramas - Cranford, Larkrise to Candleford, Fairytales etc. are only made in stereo.

    I suppose that's what our £10 a month is for!!

    Good PQ and Sky seem to have done the business with this one.

    The Anglians lost 9 men on their 6 month tour so I imagine somethings got to hit the fan over the next couple of weeks.

    Just finished watching this and really enjoyed it. I was getting pretty into it when it finished, looking forward to the next episode. The program shows what a good job and the courage our soldiers have in going to war, more than I think I could do.

    Thought it was quality, never usually watch anything on SKY One but this seems like it's going to be good series.

    Fair play to him if he wet himself under fire, I think i'd be doing that and more

    Watched it on Anytime last night also, thought it was good and looks like the rest series will be good. Not used Anytime before, is the entire series likely to be on Anytime, or just this first episode?

    Probably just the first episode, they may put the next one on but i doubt they will put them all on there.

    Best bit was when he was at the firing range and his scores came through the tannoy announcer. He scored 18 ( pass mark was 15 ) and he was the lowest. The tannoy announcer said " SAS my arse !! ". in reference to his ITV series when he played a SAS soldier

    enjoyed the program and looking forward to the rest of the series - shame it's unlikely to be on anytime though as having no adverts is great!

    This is some good viewing, some of the best in a while. Anybody know if its a weekly thing or just a special everyday for a week?

    Really looking forward to the next part. In HD, some of the scenes were amazing especially when Kemp was flying to Camp Bastion and you could see the ground, buildings, etc, stunning!

    Mind you at least all Sky One's home produced programmes only have two breaks, rather than the normal three.
