Band Of Brothers
Based on Stephen E. Ambrose’s best-selling account of a WWII US airborne unit known as Easy Company, this excellent miniseries follows the platoon from boot camp to the heat of battle, under the command of Major Winters ( Damian Lewis) and Captain Nixon ( Offi ce Space’s Ron Livingston). It’s shaping up to be the perfect lead-in to series sequel

Brothers screens in this time slot, and on Wednesday at 10.30pm.
