The first of a two-part documentary exploring Ireland's role in the Congo Crisis in 1961. Commandant Pat Quinlan and his men were placed in danger when they were sent to garrison Jadotville and cut off by militia, and all efforts to extract them were vetoed by UN chiefs. Surviving veterans tell the story of what they endured. The programme also features restored film footage.
