| Political Action Play
This is a highly watchable political drama which gives a true insight into the anguish brought about by the totally unexpected war in the South Atlantic.

The actor selection is excellent and the writer has put together an excellent script which lends clarity to some of the decisions made at the time.

The direction is crisp and the interweaving of News clips highlights the historical events.

Particularly emphasised are the outstanding efforts made by the American administration led by Ronald Regan and efforted by Secretary Haig to stop the downhill slide into war.

A truly tragic and unnecessary war - but an excellent play.

Can't wait for the DVD to be issued.
