The Parachute Regiment

Series 1 - Episode 2 The Parachute Regiment



Sean Pertwee narrates the story of the Parachute Regiment, originally formed by Winston Churchill to spearhead the liberation of Europe during the Second World War. Early paratroops recall their training and perilous missions behind enemy lines, and the programme also follows present-day recruits as they are put through the notoriously brutal P-Company selection process.
