Tales of valour and heroism from regiments within the British armed forces. The programme begins with the story of the 1879 Battle of Rorkes Drift in South Africa, where 122 Royal Welsh soldiers survived an attack by 4,000 Zulu warriors. The incident was the inspiration behind the celebrated war film Zulu starring Michael Caine, and Sean Pertwee describes how the regiment's victory continues to inspire recruits today.
